Center for Molecular Neurobiology Hamburg

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

Within these five institutes, there are a variety of 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 Northern Germany ― not just universities, but also Leibniz Institutions.


Teaching is a large part of the centre's work, educating students of all levels. From internship programmes to a graduate school and a doctoral programme, the centre offers cross-disciplinary courses, 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.
