The Master program „Interdisciplinary Neuroscience“ has been established by the Interdisciplinary Center for Neuroscience Frankfurt (ICNF). The Master of Interdisciplinary Neuroscience starts at the beginning of the winter term each year (mid-October). Applications from national and international students are welcome until
The major objective of the program is to provide a broad and intensive training in basic neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, cognitive and computational neuroscience as well as applied aspects of neuroscience to talented national and international students holding a Bachelors degree or equivalent from various fields of Natural Science, Psychology and Medicine.
The curriculum offered reflects the broad research activities of the ICNF.
Neuroscience is one of the pillars of research in Frankfurt. Both at the Faculty of Medicine with its preclinical and clinical institutions and at the Faculty of Biosciences, neuroscience represents a focus of current research. Strong neuroscience research groups are also placed at the faculties of Psychology and Sport Science, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Science, Mathematics and Physics. In addition, Frankfurt houses the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and the Max Planck Institute for Biophysics as well as the Ernst Strüngmann-Institute for Neuroscience that concentrates on cognitive neuroscience.
The Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) is associated with the university and focuses on the theoretical analysis of brain function. All these institutions not only provide input into the master program. They also offer excellent opportunities for subsequent PhD work in a highly stimulating research environment.
