Networking in German Research Foundation (DFG)-Funded Projects

The Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure (EXC 257) is actively networked within the German research landscape. NeuroCure scientists have been involved in collaborative research centres, transregional collaborative research centres, graduate research groups, research units, clinical research units and priority programs, all funded by the DFG. An Emmy Noether junior research group and Heisenberg fellowships underline the scientific excellence of the Cluster.
