Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona
The Institute of Neurosciences is an international, translational research institute of the University of Barcelona. Since its opening in 2015 (16th December 2015), it has proved to be a frontrunner in international neuroscience research – being one of the few institutes in the world that includes the study of the brain at every level. This includes research groups in neurobiology, neuropharmacology, physiopathology, neurology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, neuropsycobiology and cognitive neurosciences.
The Institute gathers about 300 researchers that belong to the Faculties of Psychology, Medicine, Pharmacy and Biology, and that are distributed among four university campuses (Mundet, Clínic, Bellvitge and Diagonal) in sunny, multicultural Barcelona. We encourage and welcome collaboration with international research groups, teams and individuals to boost our global vision of the Institute. Our members enjoy benefits such as being part of a close community, learning from some of the best neuroscience researchers in the world, collaborating in both the private and public sectors, and the access to state-of-the-art facilities.
Thanks to the María de Maetzu program, the Institut of Neurosciences of the UB will be able to strengthen its strategy and pursue more ambitious goals to keep pushing the frontiers of knowledge in Neurosciences.
