Dynacorts aims to identify individuals at risk for stress-related disorders such as depression and anxiety and to improve current treatment options. To achieve these goals, we collaborate with academic institutions and industrial partners.
DynaCorts was founded in 2011 as a Leiden University spin-off specialized in stress and psychiatric disorders. The company focuses on the stress hormone cortisol which is crucial for coping with and adaptation to the environment, but causes psychiatric symptoms upon dysregulation. It is our aim to identify who is vulnerable to stress and to develop treatment options in order to enhance resilience with the intention to improve quality of life of people and to reduce health care costs.
