Welcome to the homepage of the PhD Program Neuroscience

Modern neuroscience is a multi-disciplinary field that includes biochemistry, molecular neurobiology, cellular neurobiology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy, neuropathology, neuroimmunology, clinical neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry and neurology. The aim of the neuroscience program is to educate students to PhD level using a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach preparing them for an enspiring scientific career within the field of neuroscience in academia and/or industry.
