Welcome // Mission Statement

The Medical Neuroscience Cluster bundles the clinically relevant research activities in all areas of neuroscience and psychosocial sciences at the Medical University of Vienna. The research groups forming the cluster cover a broad spectrum of disciplines including anatomy, physiology, immunology, cell biology, pathology and pharmacology of the nervous system, neuroimaging, molecular genetics as well as clinical neurology, pediatric neurology, neuroradiology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, psychiatry and psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, child- and adolescent psychiatry.

The overall aim of all members in the MNC is to provide a better understanding of disease mechanisms in the nervous system and the psyche, to improve prevention, diagnosis and therapy and to communicate this knowledge to patients and the public.

Another important goal of the MNC is also to provide a high-level, systematic training for doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical scientists in basic neuroscience as well as in neurological, psychiatric and psychosocial research.
