Neurosciences - CNCR

logo kleinSince the early years of the 21st century, the Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research (CNCR) continues to attract new generations of promising scientists both domestically and internationally and continues to integrate diverse research and human resources. We enjoy a distinguished international reputation as an innovative center for the field of experimental neuroscience, biophysics, biostatistics and neurogenomics research.

With three departments (Functional Genomics, Integrative Neurophysiology, and Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology) working hand-in-hand on education, innovation and scientific research, the output and trackrecord of our center has been instrumental in pushing the frontiers of neurosciences. With a long tradition of working on animal mutant models, we continue to focus on several complementary themes ranging from synapse biology to behavior and cognition. We currently have twenty research teams working on these issues. Each research team is being gathered around a teamleader (being a tenured or tenure-track principle investigator).

Our mission is to focus on the biological mechanisms underlying common mental health and neurological brain diseases, applying the latest technology and thereby providing new perspectives on therapy.

The CNCR functions as the ‘department of Neurosciences’ in the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences, and as an ‘expertise center’ in Amsterdam Neuroscience.
