Happy 2023!

The iHCDP wishes you a happy new year 2023!

We are looking forward to the first iHCDP retreat, which will take place on 5th and 6th December 2022. The event will bring together iHCDP researchers from Munich, Tübingen, and Basel, and will allow the different research topics to be further integrated through a series of workshops.

In a recent interview, iHCDP director Prof. Dr. Christian Cajochen explains how seasonal depression can occur and what can help those affected.

The German-language article, entitled “Light therapy alleviates depression and low mood in the dark season,” was published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) on Saturday, 27th November 2022.
