The nervous system facing environmental issues | NeuroStra

Focus on how normal and pathological nervous system adapts to environmental changes, thereby leading to advances in therapeutic strategies essential to health outcomes.


The NeuroStra Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute aims to structure the research and training programs of Strasbourg neuroscience teams around their internationally recognized scientific strengths: pain (NeuroPain), time processing in the nervous system (NeuroTime), and neurogenetic and neurodegenerative diseases (NeuroDegen).

Thematics and research challenges

  • Structure our community around a training and research policy of excellence in neuroscience
  • Engage in an active policy of recruiting young researchers
  • Increase cutting-edge technological resources and develop new tools and platforms to support our research projects
  • Promote innovative interdisciplinary projects, responding to societal challenges and involving local expertise in the fields of chemistry, health technology, drugs, neuroeconomics, language, art and ethics
  • Increase our local, national and international visibility
  • Engage our community in an open scientific policy, especially with regard to patient associations, businesses and the general public

Graduate program

Train the new generation of scientists in neurophysiology, neuropsychology and neuropathology, with expertise in pain, time processing in the brain or neurogenetic and neurodegenerative diseases.
