Research information

Amsterdam Neuroscience aims to strengthen collaborations between investigators by focusing its research strategy on nine research programs.

Five research programs (horizontal) focusing on specific brain and nervous system disease mechanisms are complemented by four programs (vertical) focusing on innovation, that will provide proof of concept for causal relationships in brain and nervous system function mechanisms. In Amsterdam Neuroscience innovation takes place at all levels of study, from molecular to cellular studies, to circuitry and intact brain and behavior, both at the individual as well as population level.

The nine research programs outlined below act as steering committees with each a core group of Principal Investigators (PIs) and affiliated staff. Shared infrastructure and translational efforts are being realized as concerted actions within these research programs. In addition graduate training and residents are being guided with integrative feedback within each of the
research programs.

Find comprehensive information on the nine Amsterdam Neuroscience research programs at the Research Program menu and get familiar with the faces of these programs.
