Who We Are

The IN, a joint center of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (UMH), is today the publicly funded center dedicated to brain research in both normal and pathological conditions in Spain.

This is achieved through a multidisciplinary approach towards the study of the structure, function and development of the nervous system at the molecular, cellular and integrative levels. More than 300 people dedicate all their talent and effort to progress in our understanding of the biological basis of brain function and the mechanisms of brain disease. The IN maintains a balanced ratio between men and women, even at the highest management positions, and a high level of internationality that we are committed to increase to become an international center of reference in neuroscience.

Instituto de Neurociencias UMH-CSIC: More than 20 years studying the brain.

The accreditation as a “Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence” in 2014 and its renewal in 2018 have allowed us to develop an ambitious and multidisciplinary research program, undertake new methodological initiatives and recruit talented young researchers.

Where We Are

The IN is located in the town of Sant Joan d’Alacant, 7 Km from the city of Alicante and less than 3 Km away from the Mediterranean Sea, in a region favoured by an exceptional climate throughout the year. The IN is situated in the Health Sciences Campus of the UMH, which provides ample opportunity for interaction with the Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy, the University Hospital of San Juan, the Health Sciences Library and other institutions located in the campus.

The IN houses over fifty laboratories for independent research groups in a building of approximately 9,000 m2 distributed over four floors. Approximately 30% of the building houses common facilities with state-of-the-art research equipment for leading edge research in neurosciences.
