Master in Neurobiology

National Research Lobachevsky State University of Nizhni Novgorod
Campus October 2017 Russia Nizhny Novgorod

This program is an interdisciplinary program of study and designed to provide students broad training opportunities in the field of Neurobiology. [+]

Best Part time Master's Degrees in Biological & Life Sciences. Lobachevsky University offers a master's degree program (taught in English) in the high priority scientific discipline of Neurobiology. The Neurobiology program is geared towards those who are interested in studying the principles of brain functionality. This field is highly relevant and offers tremendous perspectives in modern science. This is connected with the growth of medical applications: development in the area of prostheses, creation of systems for pharmacological testing, expansion of possibilities of research-instrument equipment. Technical applications include: development of smart navigation systems and control of electro-mechanical devices. The Neurobiology program includes a wide range of the fundamental issues and applied tasks in the area of biology, medicine, physics, and robotics. The Neurobiology program proposes the study of principles and mechanisms of functionality of cells and cellular networks of the brain. Experimental study methods in brain function include: electro-physiological methods of registration with the use of patch-clamp and multi-electrode technology, fluorescent optical imaging, and methods of mathematical modeling. Development of the Neurobiology program will provide preparation of highly qualified specialists in multi-disciplinary areas. Practical work is carried out in the Institute of Life Systems at the Niznhi Novgorod Neuroscience Center. The most modern equipment is used in: the optical Neuro-imaging laboratory, cellular electro-physiology, cellular technology, molecular neurobiology. The following practical-innovative courses are taught within the framework of the program: - Biology, - Biophysics, - Mathematical modeling, - Engineering, - Theory of oscillations and waves, - Physiology of higher neural activity, - Molecular-biology. Graduates of the program will be highly-qualified specialists; possessing cutting edge knowledge and methods in the areas of neurobiology and biophysics, and will be able to work at medical instrumentation enterprises, pharmaceutical companies, biomedical laboratories, scientific-research centers, universities and medical centers.
