    Translational Neuroscience

    Focus of the Program

    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.

    Organization of the Study Program

    The first year concentrates on the four main obligatory subjects - neurobiology, neurology/neurosurgery, biopsychology and psychiatry. Further advanced modules where students can choose will be supplied.

    The methodical, practical course will be mandatory in the first semester to get familiar with various techniques used in different fields of neurosciences. In addition, participating institutes and clinics will offer topics for a three-week practical lab course. 

    The third semester concentrates on practical courses. Compulsory modules with lectures and seminars will be offered (e.g. pain, developmental neuropsychiatry, neuroimmunology, experimental psychiatry, neuronal imaging).

    The Master thesis will be prepared during the fourth semester.
