The Master study program “Translational Neuroscience“ is localized at the Faculty of Medicine.
“Translational Neuroscience“ is a scientific-oriented study program of the Faculty of Medicine with its strength in the close alliance between scientific questions from basic research and clinically-oriented research with regard to therapy and clinical routine.
So far, we do understand only a small fraction on the function of the central as well as the peripheral nervous system. Therefore, the elucidation of the pathomechanisms of diseases of the central nervous system, e.g. neurodegenerative disorders and psychiatric disorders is even more difficult. To estimate therapeutic options for such diseases a close collaboration between neuroscientists from basic research, clinical research, and theoretical institutes is absolutely mandatory.
The aim of the study program is to train and to qualify the students in scientific workings in life sciences especially in neurosciences. Here, molecular principles and modular concept development to facilitate experimental and clinical research are main points of the program. Our scientific education within “Translational Neuroscience“ procures to self-dependence and individual responsibility in scientific practice to enable the students to justice the requirements in scientific careers and society in the international context.
