Our aim is to establish a highly specialised, internationally competitive, graduate degree for honours students in the area of Experimental and Clinical Neurosciences (ECN). The ECN-Programme is based on an interdisciplinary scientific network with emphasis on decoding the molecular, cellular and neuroendocrine mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders. The following key research areas are of central importance:
Graduate studies take place in a complementary and competitive environment. Didactic concepts include the participation at interactive lectures, seminars, journal clubs and tutorials, training of preparation of slide presentations, drafted manuscripts and research proposals. The graduate students acquire experimental skills according to the research profile of the selected participating research teams, qualifications with respect to experimental design and experimental procedures, statistical data analysis, and "laboratory management" as well as data presentations.
