Looking Back:

Nathalie Tisch, PhD candidate and alumna:

"After finishing my master in Neuroscience, I became very interested in vascular biology with a particular focus on neurovascular communication, as the nervous and vascular system share many molecular mechanisms. This was only possible due to the broad scientific knowledge that I was able to gain during my studies in Heidelberg and the encouragement to join interdisciplinary research."

What others say:

Our students regularly receive very positive feedback, also from scientists from other institutions:

Dr. Broberger (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm) writes: “It has been a pleasure to have your student in the group and she has been an excellent representative for Heidelberg and the outstanding reputation your university enjoys internationally."

For the Neuroscience Major you have to do a minimum of 24 weeks of labrotations in at least three different labs. This includes the Working in Bioscience module, where you can do a labrotation in industry for instance.  Finding labrotations can be done by contacting the PI’s of the IZN associated research groups (take a look here: http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/izn/ResearchGroups.html). On Moodle you can find a more detailed list with specific projects (only accessible for current students).

For the Neuroscience Major you also have to do at least 4 seminars in Neuroscience before you can start with your master’s thesis. The seminars include, amongst others, the topics: Causes and consequences of neurodegeneration, Neurobiology of drug addiction, Neuropharmacology, Biostatistics for Neuroscientists, Body weight and fat tissue - regulated by the hypothalamus, Regenerative approaches for spinal cord injury, Neuronal stem cells and cancer, Calcium-signalling in learning, survival and death and several more. A complete list can be found on Moodle (only accessible for current students).

Semester 3 (winter)

In this semester you should undertake the remaining weeks in labrotations you still have to do. It is also the perfect time for doing a traineeship abroad. See Moodle for more details (only accessible for current students) also with respect to financial aid. 

If you are interested in doing a traineeship in the industry, this semester is also best suited to do that. You can declare the credits obtained during this traineeship in the ‘Working in Bioscience’-module.

 

Semester 4 (summer)

The Master's thesis work lasts 6 months. You undertake a laboratory research project relevant to the Major Neuroscience, write a thesis, and defend it in an oral presentation.
