iBrain - Interdisciplinary Graduate School for Brain Research and Translational Neuroscience
iBrain, the interdisciplinary graduate school for brain research and translational neuroscience at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), provides a first-class research training and qualification program for doctoral researchers working in any of the research groups of the Neuroscience Network Düsseldorf (NND). iBrain is supported by institutional funds of HHU and its Medical Faculty. The common theme of the doctoral projects pursued in iBrain is the investigation of important mechanisms involved in brain function and their disturbances in common brain diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, CNS trauma and brain tumors, with the goal to identify novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets for these mostly incurable diseases. Early stage researchers with a background in the natural sciences or medicine are provided with expert knowledge and skills in basic and translational neuroscience research.
