The Elite Graduate Program Biomedical Neuroscience is funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria.

Neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders are on a rise in developed societies, so further expansion of research and development in neurology-related health care and biomedicine is to be anticipated. The Elite Graduate Program Biomedical Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary program executed by lectures from natural science institutes as well as from clinicians and clinical scientists. Aim of the program is an intensive education in the field of basic neuroscience and neuro-psychiatric diseases. This includes both the theoretical background and the technical skills for commonly used experimental approaches in basic and clinical research. Teaching is performed in a combination of theory and hands on classes and includes project oriented scientific work in the laboratories of the participation institutes. Furthermore additional qualification like data analysis, scientific ethics, management and communication are part of the curriculum.
