PhD in Neuroscience (last intake in 2013)

Course partially running (all years except the first)


The neuroscience encompass both basic science and applied, clinical domains of knowledge and are aimed at elucidating the mechanisms underlying the development and functioning of the central and peripheral nervous system, as well as the processes leading to diseases of the nervous system and restoration of normal function following these diseases. The general goal of this doctoral program is to allow advanced training of well qualified young students to become expert researchers in basic and/or clinical neurosciences, the ultimate mission of the program being the understanding of the brain and the development of successuful therapeutic approaches to cure individuals with diseases of the nervous system. Diseases of the nervous system are not only extremely disadvantageous to affected individuals, but thy also represent one of the highest economical costs in modern societies. The understanding of the nervous system, the most complex structure in nature, requires multiple approaches and methodologies, which together form the core structure of the program.
