The University of Helsinki hosts many internationally prominent neuroscience research groups. This offers unique opportunities for you to pursue studies in state-of-the-art facilities and in an inspiring research-oriented atmosphere.

Current research focuses on the following areas: molecular and cellular neuroscience, neurophysiology and biophysics, developmental neuroscience and regeneration biology, sensory biology, cognitive and systems neuroscience, and basic research on diseases of the nervous system. Closely related are prominent research groups in functional proteomics and lipidomics. The research strategies are strongly integrative, so that questions are addressed at different levels of organisation, from molecules to behaviour, at different stages of development, and under both normal and pathophysiological conditions.
