Mission

The stress system is ubiquitous in all species and is essential to adapt to a changing environment. Its relevance for humans and animals can therefore not be overestimated. Excessive or prolonged stress exposure increases the risk for a wide variety of mental and physical symptoms. Our current understanding of the stress system and variability in outcomes after stress exposure is limited. The STRESS-NL consortium envisions that combining forces between researchers across the Netherlands ranging from preclinical to clinical stress research is needed to advance our knowledge and the stress field as a whole. The STRESS-NL consortium aims to change the current way of performing stress studies, by combining knowledge, efforts, and sharing data, but also joining efforts to emphasize the importance of fundamental and applied stress research to funding agencies, the government and the general public.
1

Provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge about stress research conducted within molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, and clinical neurosciences across the Netherlands.

2

Provide a platform for exchange and integration of data to enable larger (meta) analyses of data acquired across multiple sites and research groups.

3

Provide a platform that can promote stress research toward stakeholders at national and European levels and beyond (grant agencies, charity foundations, etc.) as a focus area that is historically particularly strong within the Netherlands.

4

Provide a platform that can raise public awareness, knowledge, and trust of scientific research into stress and stress-related disorders
