About Us

The Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) is the common platform of systems-oriented neuroscience at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, and one of the biggest and most prolific centres of neuroscience currently to be found in Europe.

As a Cluster of Excellence the CIN is part of the framework of the German Universities Excellence Initiative, funded by the German federal and state governments.

Graduate Training Centre

In order to provide students with state-of-the-art neuroscience training and, at the same time, ensure a steady supply of well-trained students for the local laboratories, the CIN has strengthened and extended the training of graduate students by setting up the Tübingen Graduate Training Center of Neuroscience (GTC).

The GTC serves as an umbrella body for three neuroscience graduate schools, each of them comprising a consecutive masters & doctoral degree program with complementary scientific foci. Together they offer a markedly broad spectrum of research and training opportunities in neuroscience, extending from genes to cognition all the way to computational approaches and state-of-the-art methods employed in neurosciences. Today, Tübingen is a prime location for graduate students and post-docs interested in any one of the many aspects of neuroscience.

High School Lab

Winning talented young people for neuroscience: The CIN and the Hertie Institue for Clinical Brain Research have jointly established a "Schülerlabor Neurowissenschaften" (Neuroscience Lab for High School Students).

The Schülerlabor is yearly visited by approximately 2,000 students from schools in Tübingen and the vicinity. It also organises workshops and summer camps for students, and offers scientific training for teachers. In the few years of its operation, it has already attracted considerable attention, locally and regionally.

Learn more about the role of the Schülerlabor.

Research Training Projects

As a new concept within the framework of our intramural funding programme, the CIN has asked for applications of small consortia fostering international cooperation in PhD student training. Four such consortia have installed Research Training Projects (RTPs), which have commenced their work in July 2017. They will be running for a three-year period and enable a current total of 15 students to complete a PhD project in an international and interdisciplinary environment.
