International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences
Medical Neurosciences focuses on translational research. The main objective is to bridge the gap between successes at the bench and – currently - less than satisfactory treatment at the bedside. To do so, we integrate basic laboratory research and the clinic in terms of faculty, students, course content and infrastructure.
Our educational approach is based on in depth classroom teaching in small groups and carefully guided practical training. The program covers the breadth of neuroscience from basic neurobiology to cognition and neurovascular diseases. Within this spectrum, we encourage students to develop their own research focus and career goals.
MSc graduates have the theoretical background, practical skills and faculty contact necessary for continued research in PhD projects. In the PhD program, these qualifications are further enhanced and combined with rigorous research work ranging from molecule to man. (February 2010)
