Welcome to Ped Mind Institute,

Ped Mind Institute is an independent brain storming group of researchers concentrating on innovative pediatric medicine, innovative ideas in the clinical field of pediatrics and pediatric surgery for helping children in their daily life and treatment in pediatric departments and ambulatory settings.

Ped Mind Institute was founded in 2010 to combine daily pediatric work with innovative research projects. In the last 10 years, scientific cooperations with international researchers and hospitals from all over the world were realized.

We are very happy about the great interest in our work. All members of Ped Mind Institute are innovative thinking personalities, working idealistic in a non-profit manner.

Research interests are based on clinical studies of diseases like the origin and pathogenesis of COVID-19, the origin of Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, Hydranencephaly and other rare diseases in childhood. Moreover we focus on innovative research in virtual reality (VR), social roboters in daily pedaitric care (Avatar) and artificial intelligence (AI) in pediatrics. All manuscripts and works done by Ped Mind Institute are non-profitial and not supported by any grants.

Look around and go in touch with us, if you want to cooperate with us.

The best for our children.

Best wishes,

Stefan Bittmann M.D., M.A., Ph.D.
