The postdoctoral network includes members from the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, the University of Magdeburg and clinicians translating fundamental research into clinical applications.

The primary goal of this project is to establish a network to foster research on the physiological impact of monoamines on neuronal brain circuits, and to increase the impact of the individual research of young investigators on this emerging, internationally highly competitive field.

In addition to promoting scientific excellence the network is a means to establish gender equal opportunity and optimal mentoring of young investigators. The scientists at the postdoc stage are prepared for taking group leader positions by establishing their already developed research program within the scientific community.
