The Network of Partners established by the International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences
Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin has a global network of partners. The health care-related challenges facing us today require intensive efforts to establish both national and international collaborations involving both treatment centers and research and teaching establishments. Cross-border cooperations with top-level partners will ensure Charité maintains its leading position as one of Europe's largest university hospitals.
This page provides an overview of the growing Network of Partners established by the International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences which includes
- Charité-based institutions,
- other universities and university-based research institutions,
- governmental and non-governmental organizations and
- industrial R&D partners.
Cluster of Excellence 'NeuroCure'
NeuroCure is an interdisciplinary consortium uniting neuroscientists, basic researchers, and clinicians on one campus, independent of their institutional affiliations. Building on the strength of the Berlin neuroscience community in the areas of cerebrovascular diseases, neuroinflammation, and disorders of network formation, NeuroCure's initial focus will be on stroke, multiple sclerosis, focal epilepsies, and deveolpmental disturbances. These neurological disorders are known to have overlapping pathophysiological cascades the underlying mechanisms of which NeuroCure sets out to unravel. In addition, NeuroCure aims to create new research structures by
- attracting new faculty to broaden and deepen expertise in the Berlin neuroscience community
- allocating flexible intramural funds to start up interactive and innovative projects
- setting up an animal research unit for long-term outcome and behavioral analysis
- establishing the NeuroCure Clinical Research Center (NCRC)
The Humboldt Graduate School supports the structural training of doctoral candidates:
- Quality control of doctoral programs, including measures to support and ensure equal opportunity
- The coordination of and expansion of disciplinary and transdisciplinary training courses within the graduate programs
- The provision of general administrative services which are not specific to any one graduate program
- The supervision and training of doctoral candidates outside of structured doctoral programs, within the capabilities of the Humboldt Graduate School.
Max-Dellbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine
The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch combines basic research in molecular biology and genetics with clinical research so that the latest medical discoveries can be brought to the bedside as quickly as possible. The research teams of Prof. Kettenmann (Cellular Neurosciences) and Prof. Lewin (Molecular Physiology of Somatic sensation) are partners of the program.
Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development
The focus of the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development is
- Adaptive Behavior and Cognition
- Educational Research
- Lifespan Psychology
- History of Emotions
- Neurocognition of Decision Making
- Affect Across the Lifespan
Neuroscience in Berlin
The website www.neuroscience-berlin.com provides information on neuroscience education and research in Berlin. We have teamed up with other neuroscience graduate schools in Berlin to make this a comprehensive information platform:
- International Graduate Program Computational Neurosciences
- Berlin School of Mind and Brain
- Helmholtz International Research School of Molecular Neurobiology
- Research Training Group (GRK) 1123: Cellular Mechanisms of Learning and Memory
- Research Training Group (GRK) 1258: The Impact of Inflammation on Nervous System Function
German Graduate Schools of Neurosciences
German Graduate Schools of Neurosciences is a network of neuroscience graduate programs in Germany. The involved schools cooperate in marketing and admission and exchange good practice ideas.
