The Master of Science (MSc) program in “Translational Neuroscience” is a two-year, research-oriented, interdisciplinary, international study program that is intended to be continued with a PhD project at institutes of the Medical Faculty or the Graduate School of Life Sciences Wuerzburg or at other universities. The curriculum is taught in English and is divided into modules combining lectures, seminars and laboratory work.
The program comprises more than 30 research groups of the Medical Faculty and other Natural Sciences such as Psychology contributing to excellent Neuroscience research at the University of Wuerzburg. We bring together students from different biological or medical backgrounds and train and qualify a new generation of neuroscientists that will be able to develop novel therapeutic strategies for complex neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. Our scientific education within “Translational Neuroscience“ procures self-dependence and individual responsibility in scientific practice to enable the students to fulfill the requirements to engage in innovative research and start careers in a large variety of clinical or scientific careers.
