The Institute of Neurosciences was created in 2015 (16th December 2015). It is a frontrunner in international neuroscience research, being one of the few institutes in the world that investigates the brain at every level. This includes research groups in neurobiology, neuropharmacology, pathophysiology, neurology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, neuropsycobiology and cognitive neurosciences.
The Institute has been awarded with the María de Maeztu Excellence Unit accreditation, and gathers about 450 researchers from the Faculties of Psychology, Medicine, Pharmacy and Biology, distributed among four university campuses (Mundet, Clínic, Bellvitge and Diagonal) in the multicultural city of Barcelona. We encourage and welcome collaboration with international research groups and organisations to boost the global vision of the Institute.
