The Institute of Neurosciences (UBneuro) was created under the premise to gather all research at the University of Barcelona that focused on a common goal: understanding the nervous system as a whole to give response to society challenges. 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, neuropsychobiology and cognitive neurosciences.
The Institute has been awarded with the María de Maeztu Excellence Unit accreditation, and gathers near to 450 researchers from the University of Barcelona, in the multicultural city of Barcelona. We encourage and welcome collaboration with international research groups and organisations.
