The organization of courses in the form of summer postgraduate schools, Master of Science, for international students, offering subjects like neuroanatomy, neurogenetics, human and evolutionary biology, and medical radiology-imaging, will be made possible by an interdisciplinary education and research center connected to the George Emil Palade University Clinical Hospital that unites basic neurosciences with clinical ones.
Another benefit is the improvement in the calibre of interdisciplinary research, which has led to outside funding and Q1 publications, the training of highly qualified staff, guided to establish a culture of research and education, but also the conduct of basic and clinical research in neuroimaging, new effective and sensitive diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers, new therapies, including genetic therapies.
Romania’s medical universities are among the most prestigious in the country. Many foreign students come to Romania to study medicine because of the meagre costs. Outstanding doctors emerge from the benches of the country’s medical facilities, and through this implementation of a neurosurgery research clinic, students can perform incredibly in the neuroscience field.
