Aparajita

Lund University, Sweden

I didn't expect my master thesis to be considered by Nature (under consideration now) or that I would have the opportunity to get the Marie Curie grant for my Ph.D. But I am on my way and it all started with the Integrative Neuroscience masters program. It was not the easiest thing for me to do. Especially the Theoretical Neuroscience and MATLAB were living nightmares. But now I am grateful that I had to take those courses and I had that exposure. These days, molecular biology and bioinformatics walk hand in hand and the Theoretical Neuroscience actually equipped me with the courage and theunderstanding to dig dipper into the realm of bioinformatics. I think this is the best part of this masters, that it integrates and teaches different branches of Neuroscience and gives one the opportunity to pick one to continue with, with a collaborative understanding about the other branches.

I finished the program in 2011 and I really enjoyed it. The MSc program is unique as it provides a solid background in various domains of neuroscience. The classes are very small and courses are taught by scientists from the internationally renowed research centers in Magdeburg. The labrotations allow you to gain experience in and get a taste of different research areas, and finally specialize in the field that you are most interested in. I decided to stay for my PhD (in Emrah Düzel’s lab) since Magdeburg offers an outstanding range of neuroimaging techniques to study human behaviour.

This is Sai Karthik. My experience in Magdeburg has been very enlightening. The MSc Integrative Neuroscience is an all-encompassing program in Neuroscience. I was attracted to the wide and diverse array of courses cateringto all branches of Neuroscience. The lab rotations, journal clubs and presentations equipped me with the skills for pursuing a PhD. Magdeburg is a University town and definitely you would not be treated to a typical party atmosphere. However, it is rich in nature and a nature lover like me enjoyed thescenic beauty the city had to offer.
