A Network of Competence

The ZNZ is a joint competence center of UZH and ETHZ creating synergies between 150 research groups from both universities and the University Hospitals and Clinics in Zurich. We promote neuroscience research by increasing scientific interaction between and among basic, applied and clinical research groups, by improving the mutual utilization of infrastructure, by fostering training with MSc and Ph.D. programs, by providing financial support, by establishing and improving relations to other research centers, universities and industry and by enhancing public awareness.
