These strictly secured medication rooms are certified by the FAMHP.

Medical Permanence

Since the Anima Research Center is located on the private campus of the family Dr. Erik Buntinx - Dr. Hilde Bollen, there is always the direct presence of at least one physician within walking distance when a study participant is present.
Accessibility is further assured by an internal electronic telephone system and a specific professional WIFI network that is active across the entire campus and in all its buildings. Thus, every study participant is assured of the necessary immediate medical intervention.
This is where the Anima Research Center distinguishes itself significantly.
An important guarantee for the participant, the sponsor and the supervising authorities.
