Center for Molecular Neurobiology

The institute is a part of the medical department at Universität Hamburg and is one of the leading neuroscience centres in Germany.

Center for Molecular Neurobiology

Part of both Universität Hamburg and the Universitätsklinikum Eppendorf (UKE), the Center for Molecular Neurobiology (in German: Zentrum für Molekulare Neurobiologie) was established in 1987, and today has five institutes and eight research groups.

Research Institutes

The five institutes of the centre focus on Structural Neurobiology, Molecular Neurogenetics, Synaptic Physiology, Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis (INIMS), and Molecular and Cellular Cognition.

Within these five institutes, there are many research projects, such as protein transport, neuronal development and behavioural biology. Research is varied and there is a great deal of information sharing between areas of biomedical research. The Center for Molecular Neurobiology also has links with many other research institutions in North Germany ─ not just universities, but also Leibniz Institutions.

Teaching

Teaching is also a large part of the centre's work, educating students of all levels. From interns, through to a graduate school and a doctoral programme, the centre offers cross-disciplinary teaching, as well as research seminars to foster scientific exchange. Students of medicine, molecular biology and natural sciences all have the possibility of improving their practical knowledge through courses at the centre.
