Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona (UBneuro)

A María de Maeztu unit since 2017

The Institute of Neurosciences  (UBneuro) was launched in 2015 under the premise to gather all research at the University of Barcelona that focused on a common goal: understanding the nervous system as a whole to give response to society challenges. 

It is a frontrunner in international neuroscience research, being one of the few institutes in the world that investigates the brain at every level. This includes research groups in neurobiology, neuropharmacology, pathophysiology, neurology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, neuropsychobiology and cognitive neurosciences.

The Institute has been awarded with the María de Maeztu Excellence Unit accreditation, and gathers near to 450 researchers from the University of Barcelona, in the multicultural city of Barcelona. We encourage and welcome collaboration with international research groups and organisations. 

Our members enjoy benefits such as being part of a close community, learning from some of the best neuroscience researchers in the world, collaborating in both the private and public sectors, and state-of-the-art facilities.

Thanks to the María de Maetzu program, the Institut of Neurosciences of the UB will be able to strengthen its strategy and pursue more ambitious goals to keep pushing the frontiers of knowledge in Neurosciences.
