Systemic Neurosciences course from Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich will help in educating a new generation of neuroscientists not only to have the ability to develop new approaches and methods, but also to possess a broad understanding of the complexity of the scientific subject and a profound knowledge of the theory of science.


Each doctoral student in Systemic Neurosciences has an individually assigned thesis committee with whom training measures are discussed and defined. Regular meetings and continuous supervision support doctoral students in mastering their challenging research projects.

 In addition, the training concept of the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences from Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich, also incorporates the development of valuable transferable skills.


Scientific and social networking, enhanced by the contacts offered through the international research network of the Munich Center for Neurosciences - Brain & Mind, round off the research training within the GSN-LMU.
