The Neuroscience Program / International Max Planck Reseach School is member of the Göttingen Graduate Center of Neurosciences, Biophysics and Molecular (GGNB), funded by the German Excellence Initiative, under the umbrella of the Georg-August University School of Science (GAUSS). It is conducted jointly by the participating departments and research groups of the University of Göttingen, including the University Medical Center, and its partners:
- Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (MPI-nat)
- Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-ds)
- European Neuroscience Institute (ENI)
- German Primate Center (DPZ)
- German Center for Neurodegeneratve Diseases (DZNE) - Göttingen Site
