Medical Neuroscience Cluster (MNC)

The Medical Neuroscience Cluster (MNC) bundles the clinically relevant research activities in all areas of neuroscience and psychosocial sciences at the Medical University of Vienna.

General information about the research cluster


The research groups forming the cluster cover a broad spectrum of disciplines including anatomy, physiology, immunology, cell biology, pathology and pharmacology of the nervous system, molecular genetics as well as clinical neurology, pediatric neurology, neuroradiology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, psychiatry and psychotherapy. 

The overall aim of all members in the MNC is to provide a better understanding of disease mechanisms in the nervous system, to improve prevention, diagnosis and therapy and to communicate this knowledge to patients and the public.

Another important goal of the CMNC is also to provide a high-level, systematic- training for doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical scientists in basic neuroscience as well as in neurological, psychiatric and psychosocial research.
