We are very pleased to invite you to the official kick off  and opening of the interfaculty Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN).

Maastricht University is world-leading in neuroscience research, hosting an excellent wide-ranging spectrum of laboratories and cutting-edge neuroscience infrastructure used and developed by various UM research groups comprised of world-renowned experts.

The Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN), with the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience (MHeNS) of FHML and the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) as its founders, aims to strengthen and support inter-faculty research cooperation in the field of neuroscience. By bringing together the neuroscience activities across schools, departments and faculties, CIN not only will facilitate neuroscience research at Maastricht University, but also increase its visibility and recognition.

This agreement covers the first phase with a focus on cooperation in neuroscience research between MHeNS and FPN. In phase two the cooperation within the framework of CIN can be extended to other faculties and research clusters involving neuroscience.   

CIN has appointed two directors: prof. Bart Rutten (MHeNS) and prof. Alexander Sack (FPN)
