Search Committees for Future JARA Directors Meet
A joint meeting of the Search Committees will be held on 10 April 2015 at Forschungszentrum Jülich to discuss the appointment of the future JARA directors. On this occasion, the JARA-BRAIN scientists and candidates for the posts of director Prof. Ute Habel, Prof. Kerstin Konrad, Prof. Frank Schneider, and Prof. Jörg B. Schulz will present the research priorities of the future institutes as well as insights into their own research work.
The aim of the new JARA-BRAIN institutes "Brain Structure-Function Relationships" (INM-10) and "Molecular
Neuroscience and Neuroimaging" (INM-11) is to investigate the human brain. Demographic change is leading to an increasing number of patients with neurological disorders. Important scientific tasks therefore not only include the development of new treatments and innovative diagnostic methods but also understanding the functions and disorders of the brain.
In addition to the two institutes in the JARA-BRAIN section, two other institutes are being established in the JARA-FIT section.
