The doctoral program "Molecular Physiology of the Brain" is a member of the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). The graduate school offers a joint modular training program to which the twelve doctoral programs of GGNB contribute and that is open to all GGNB students. The program is designed for graduates from all areas of life sciences and medicine and provides them with a comprehensive training in key methods of modern molecular and cellular neurobiology such as biochemistry, molecular biology, cell staining and imaging, electrophysiology, systems physiology, light and electron microscopy, and genetics in at least one classical model organism.

Protein purification and identification, modern microscopy and imaging techniques, electrophysiological techniques, and genetic model organisms. At the practical level, the program systematically provides short introductory courses on electron microscopy techniques, life imaging, patch-clamp electrophysiology, ES cell techniques and mouse genetics, and C. elegans genetics. State-of-the-art research training lab in electrophysiology.
20 Credits (ECTS) have to be obtained by a student of this program during his/her doctoral studies from (1) scientific colloquia, lectures and seminars, (2) international research conferences, (3) methods courses, (4) professional skills training, (5) teaching, and (6) electives (e.g. language course, courses from other disciplines).
