The aim of our CBBS neuroscience graduate program is to connect students from the Otto von Guericke University (OVGU), the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). The CBBS graduate program is founded by the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences CBBS, a central scientific institution of the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (OVGU).

Under the umbrella of the Otto von Guericke Graduate Academy (OVG-GA), you can find on our webpage useful information about upcoming events on the campus dealing with neuroscience and our graduate students can use a our platform for scientific exchange with both other students and PIs. Moreover, we organize lectures focusing on state-of-the-art methods used in neuroscience.
