The MASTER of NEUROSCIENCES aims to train the next generation of neuroscientists via an ambitious English-taught program based on the world-renowned scientific expertise available in Lyon, France. The highly interdisciplinary program covers topics ranging from basic research in human and animal models to applied and translational Neuroscience. The Master allows students to specialize in their field of interest (e.g. Cognitive Neurosciences, Cellular Neurobiology, Clinical Neurosciences, Computational Neurosciences) and includes extensive practical activities in laboratories.

Within the recently created Neurosciences Graduate School « from Neurons to Brain », the MASTER of NEUROSCIENCES provides a strong training program with unique opportunities for research interactions (individual mentoring and platform-based training) and international experience (exchange fellowships).
