Program Description:

The Graduate School of Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience provides research-oriented training with a focus on neurologic and psychiatric disorders employing genetic, molecular and cellular approaches as well as molecular imaging techniques and transgenic mouse technology. Of particular importance is basic and clinical research on pathogenetic mechanisms leading to neurodegenerative diseases of the aging brain, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and Chorea Huntington. A second research focus in Tübingen is on sensory organs, in particular on the genetic causes and pathomechanisms of hereditary retinal disorders, the molecular mechanisms of myopia development, the role of epigenetic and transcription factors for inner ear development, and the molecular mechanisms of hearing loss and tinnitus. Further research topics include neurooncology, neurodevelopment, synaptic plasticity and neuroregeneration.


In 2009, the master program of the Graduate School of Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience has undergone a rigorous accreditation procedure and has in March 2010 been awarded the 'seal of approval' by the board of the accreditation agency ACQUIN. The accredited course of study in "Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience" leads - after earning of 120 ECTS credit points - to a "Master of Science"-degree. The accreditation is valid until Sept 30, 2014.
