Amsterdam Neuroscience aims to strengthen collaborations between investigators by focusing its research strategy on nine research programs. Five research programs focusing on specific brain and nervous system disease mechanisms are complemented by four programs focusing on innovation, that will provide proof of concept for causal relationships in brain and nervous system function mechanisms. In Amsterdam Neuroscience innovation takes place at all levels of study, from molecular to cellular studies, to circuitry and intact brain and behavior, both at the individual as well as population level.

The nine research programs outlined below act as steering committees with each over fifteen scientists and Principal Investigators (PIs). Shared infrastructure and translational efforts will be realized. Graduate training and residents will be guided with integrative feedback within each of the research programs.
