Welcome to the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin

This Center was founded to provide an umbrella structure to foster interdisciplinary, collaborative research; harmonize and combine the many existing graduate programs in Berlin; and improve international visibility. We want to facilitate further synergies among the different research groups and promote interactions at all levels.

In Memoriam Uwe Heinemann

Uwe and friends at a symposium in 2014

Prof. Dr. Uwe Heinemann passed away on September 8, 2016. As we grieve the loss of our colleague, mentor and friend, we remember his career and his impact.

Uwe Heinemann studied medicine in Munich. Following doctoral studies and training in Oxford, he joined the Max Planck Institute for Physiology in Munich. In 1986, he was appointed Professor for Physiology and Pathophysiology at the University of Cologne. In 1993 he became Chair of the Institute for Neurophysiology at the Charité in Berlin. In 2012, he was appointed Senior Professor at NeuroCure and the Neuroscience Research Center (NWFZ), Charité. 
 
Uwe Heinemann’s research in experimental neurophysiology focused mainly on mechanisms of epileptogenesis and pharmacoresistance, but he was also interested in cellular mechanisms of learning and memory consolidation. He authored more than 300 publications, received multiple international prizes for his epilepsy research, and served on the neuroscience panel of prestigious funding organisations including the German Research Foundation (DFG) and European Research Council.
 
Uwe Heinemann was a driving and defining force behind initiatives that have had a lasting impact on Berlin neuroscience. He was a founding member and Chair of the NWFZ until 2005, and founding member and Co-Director of NeuroCure until 2010. Thereafter, he continued to serve as advisor for major funding proposals, including NeuroCure II and the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin.
 
Uwe Heinemann was deeply committed to training scientists of the future. The number of researchers he mentored and influenced - many of whom have become professors in their own right - is truly impressive. In addition, he served as Coordinator of DFG Research Training Group 1123, “Cellular Mechanisms of Learning and Memory Consolidation in the Hippocampal Formation”. He cared greatly about education and access for PhD and medical students, and played an active role in developing curricula and making sure students could participate in scientific congresses, meetings and the like. Those lucky enough to have had him as their supervisor or mentor will remember not only his scientific rigor and enthusiasm, but also his boundless willingness to help, and dedication to his mentees’ development and success.
 
Thank you, Uwe, for all the years you shared with us. We will never forget you.
 
Our thoughts and condolences are with Uwe’s family.
 
A memorial service will be held on September 30, 2016 at 10:00 at the Heilig-Geist-Kapelle of the Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Spandauer Strasse 1, 10178 Berlin.
 
The funeral will take place at 12:00 at the Dorotheenstädtischen Friedhof II, Liesenstrasse 9, 13355 Berlin.

"Brains in vivo and in silico: from Synapses and Circuits to Brain-Inspired Technologies"

The German Neuroscience Society announces travel stipends for young researchers for the participation in the symposium "Brains in vivo and in silico: from Synapses and Circuits to Brain-Inspired Technologies" to be held in Jerusalem, Israel on November 28 – 30, 2016. The symposium is jointly organized by the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

Young qualified researchers will have the opportunity to present their own work to German and Israel key neuroscientists in poster sessions and to discuss the most recent developments with them. Besides lectures and discussions the scientific program also includes lab visits. The conference language is English, subsequently the posters must be prepared and presented in English.

The stipend awardees will be selected by a committee of the German Neuroscience Society.

The stipend amounts to 350 Euro and can be used for travel expenses (based on receipts). In addition it includes waived registration fee, free participation in the social events and accommodation (hotel rooms will be booked by the organizers).

ECN at FENS 2016 in Copenhagen

The Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin was represented at FENS for the first time with a booth at the 10th FENS Forum in Copenhagen, July 2-6, 2016. The booth was a tremendous success, and for three days we were very busy presenting our Center and the upcoming new training program. It was exciting to see how much interest the ECN generated among FENS participants. We had many great conversations with students, scientists and exhibitors alike.
The conference drew over 5800 participants from more than 76 countries around the world.

The FENS Forum 2016 facilitates and promotes the exchange of knowledge and neuroscience research.
