Medical Neurosciences has many professors, lecturers, medical doctors and researchers participate for module of the program. Our faculty teach introductory as well as in-depth lectures as part of the modules, supervise students during their laboratory rotations, and offer elective courses. The program office regularly reviews the quality of the lecturers based on the students’ evaluations and feedback. Our faculty consists of member of the Charité as well as associated institute like the Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) or the Leipniz Institute for Molecure Pharmacology (FMP).
