Expertise in Molecular-, Cellular-, and Systems Neuroscience
The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, the Goethe University Frankfurt, and the Technische Universität Darmstadt have selected neuroscience as their research focus and have signed a contract of cooperation in the biomedical sciences to this end. The contract will ensure an aligned strategic plan in developing neurosciences at both locations. Specifically, the contract guarantees harmonization of the hiring strategy, enables researchers and students alike to utilize facilities at both institutions, and provides the formal basis for common research activities such as CRCs or CRUs. Moreover, the University Mainz Campus and its Medical Center are a mere 37-minute drive from the University Hospital in Frankfurt and just a 42-minute drive from the Campus at Frankfurt Riedberg with its Max Planck Institutes (MPIs) and University Biocenter.
Researchers in the neurosciences from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, the Goethe University Frankfurt, the Technische Universität Darmstadt, the Max-Planck-Institutes for Brain Research and Empirical Aesthetics, the Institute for Molecular Biology Mainz, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS), the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) and the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) have established the Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network (rmn²). Expertise in molecular-, cellular-, and systems neuroscience is the hallmark of rmn². The Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network is a project of the Rhine-Main Universities.
