The Munich Center for Neurosciences - Brain & Mind (MCN-LMU) and its teaching entity - the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN-LMU) - aim to link local research groups from all areas of the neurosciences. Through creating an interdisciplinary network of excellent research with strong international connections, MCN and GSN provide a stimulating environment for students and faculty to produce novel formulations of current concepts and theories.
Since 2005, MCN and GSN have become the hub for neuroscience research and education in the Munich area. Our commitment to excellence sets high standards for researchers, who strive for quality and replicability.
The Scientific Boards of MCN and GSN have long supported courses and events on responsible science and good scientific practice. At the institutional level, the most recent commitment to the LMU open science initiative will be enhanced by outreach and interdisciplinary dialogue, engaging GSN’s 147 faculty, more than 220 current students, as well as over 230 alumni, and 100 MCN members, respectively. Long-standing routines such as the Thesis Advisory Committees (TAC) for all doctoral researchers complement any further actions toward scientific integrity.
