The objective of the Neurocluster is to strengthen the Faculty's neurobiological research and teaching by promoting collaborative, cross-disciplinary research projects, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate education within the neuroscience field. To achieve this objective, the cluster has focused on four research themes (neurodegeneration and -regeneration, neuronal signaling in health and disease, biological psychiatry, motor control and rehabilitation); also has two experimental platforms (neuroimaging, neurogenomics and neuroproteomics); as well as a programme of education. Interaction within these themes and platforms, aided by seminars, symposia, an annual ‘Neuro day´, and other network-building initiatives, will facilitate the development of new collaborative research projects.

The Neurocluster currently includes 46 senior scientists from the Department of Molecular Pathology, Department of Medical Physiology, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Genetics, Department of Medical Anatomy, Department of Pharmacology, Rigshospitalet, Bispebjerg Hospital, Glostrup Hospital, Herlev Hospital, Hvidovre Hospital, and The John F. Kennedy Institute.

The Neurocluster is linked to the Graduate School of Neuroscience, headed by Professor, Morten Møller.

The Faculty provides the cluster with additional funds of 10,8 mill. DDK, distributed over a five-year period.
