The Oxford-McGill-Zurich Partnership

The Neuroscience Center Zurich forged an international partnership with Brain@McGill in 2010 to build on existing collaborations and develop new interactions with the goal of fostering neuroscience research. Together with Oxford Neuroscience the three institutions have signed a new memorandum of understanding in June 2013. The Oxford-McGill-Zurich Partnership was renewed in May 2017 for five years.

Our partners

Oxford Neuroscience is a leading institution in the UK. World leading research is conducted over four campuses including the John Radcliffe and Warneford Hospitals.
The Brain@McGill is a multi-institutional initiative at McGill University that promotes multi-disciplinary neuroscience research while unifying the research centers, institutes and hospitals in McGill’s Neuroscience network. With 250 principal investigators and 500 PhD students in the Neuroscience program, McGill University is a top neuroscience center in North America.


The partnership will open new horizons in basic neuroscience research and clinical intervention and foster research synergies between groups with complementary infrastructure, knowledge and research expertise. Excellence in neuroscience education and postgraduate training will be fostered by facilitating student mobility across the three centers.


Four kinds of collaborative ventures are foreseen:

  • Strategic joint projects
  • Pilot projects
  • Workshops
  • PhD student mobility grants more
