The program promotes excellence and educates students on the significant issues in Neuroscience. The challenging curricula includes mandatory taught courses which cover the main aspects of Medical Genetics and a number of elective courses enabling students to broaden their knowledge on other fields of Neuroscience. The PhD Research Projects on various aspects of Neuroscience are conducted in the state-of-the-art Departments and Clinics of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING). As an International Centre of Excellence, CING carries out pioneering research in Neuroscience and therefore provides PhD students with the knowledge and tools to complete a competitive Research or Library Project. PhD Students have the opportunity to attend courses (during their 1st year of studies) in innovative fields which include Brain and Behaviour, Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience, Neurosciences and Neurogenetics, Cytogenetics and Genomics, Molecular Genetics, Molecular Basis of Monogenic Diseases, Molecular Virology and Immunology and Molecular Basis of Complex Diseases.
