CBBS NeuroNetworks


In order to support future-oriented cooperation between non-established CBBS members, especially young researchers, and other groups within the Center and within the University, we have created Junior Networks under competitive terms that consist of 3-5 workgroups, in which each workgroup is eligible to apply for a PhD Student position including consumables. These networks serve as nesting grounds for innovative approaches in bringing interdisciplinary research within CBBS to a new particularly valuable level while also strengthening bonds with other University groups and research focuses in the state.

After careful review of the multitude of project proposal submissions we have chosen to support the following with funding:
