The PhD Program team

The NeuroSchool PhD program was created through true teamwork. It continues to evolve every day under the impulse of the pedagogical team and the PhD students themselves.

Context

Marseille is home to one of the largest French academic communities in neuroscience (452 permament members), covering a wide range of topics from basic to clinical research, and is the third largest university hospital in Europe. Cutting-edge approaches and techniques are commonly used to study fundamental questions about the functional and dynamic organization of the nervous system. We explore the brain at all scales, from the molecular to the cognitive level. One of the main objectives is to closely link basic and clinical neuroscience to explore, understand and treat neurological and psychiatric disorders.

The training of neuroscience graduates in Marseille is based on two well-established training programs: the Aix-Marseille master’s degree and PhD program in neuroscience. Both have updated their training offer and increased their international attractiveness thanks to the Brain Master Program and the PhD Program in neuroscience, two initiatives funded by the A*MIDEX University Foundation.

History of the PhD Program

In 2010 a workgroup (F. Cayetanot, F. Chavane, F. Danion, G Masson, A. Montagnini, J. Peyronnet-Roux, S. Ravel, L. Vinay) organized the foundations of the doctoral program in neuroscience.

An initial version was launched at the end of 2011 and was mainly intended for students of the brand new Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone (INT).

Under the impulse of Laurent Vinay, we expanded its scope and audience in 2012 with the help of F. Feron (INP).

In 2013, the Academy of Excellence of Aix Marseille University (A*Midex) recognized and funded our international PhD program: PhD program in Integrative and Clinical Neuroscience (ICN), coordinated by F Chavane, F. Feron and L Vinay.

Since the launch of NeuroSchool in 2018, the ICN PhD program has become known as the NeuroSchool PhD program. Currently, the executive committee of the PhD program is composed of researchers from different Neuroscience laboratories and a clinician (A. Eusebio) from the AP-HM.
