Neurobiology of Resilience to Stress-Related Mental Dysfunction: From Understanding Mechanisms to Promoting Prevention

Dear Prospective Candidate for Our Master Scholarship,

The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1193 investigates the brain mechanisms underlying resilience to stress and stress-related disorders. Stress-related affective disorders constitute a major health burden to society. In this research center, an interdisciplinary team of researchers ranging from molecular and cellular neurobiologists to human cognitive and clinical neuroscientists, collaborates to understand how the majority of people experiencing severe stress or potentially traumatic life events manage to stay healthy. To this end, we apply a wide range of methods from mouse model to human neuroimaging. The CRC is part of the Frankfurt and Mainz neuroscience community (rmn2). At Goethe University, CRC projects are located at the Institute of Neurophysiology, the Department of Psychiatry, the Department of Psychology, the Brain Imaging Center, and at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology.


If you are interested in becoming part of this interdisciplinary research center during your Masters Program at Goethe University and would like to apply for the Master scholarship, see here for more detailed information: https://crc1193.de/
