Neuroscience has become an extremely exciting field during the last decade: important milestone discoveries about the nervous system have been made, and new technologies have become available.

The EPFL PhD Program in Neuroscience (EDNE) provides its students with training from the genetic to the behavioural level including molecular and cellular, cognitive, computational and neuroprosthetic neurosciences.

Students matriculate in the highly dynamic and interdisciplinary environment of the EPFL, in the Brain Mind Institute (School of Life Sciences), in the Blue Brain Project, in the Center for Neuroprosthetics or in other research groups affiliated to our program.

There is a close cooperation between the EDNE program and the Neuroscience programs of the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne (LN Doctoral School).
