About the TINS team

The Transylvanian Institute of Neuroscience (TINS) is a private, non-profit research institute founded by neuroscientists. Its main mission is to further neuroscientific research by studying the dynamics of neural circuits in health and disease. TINS also focuses on research in cognitive sciences and brain-inspired artificial intelligence. TINS is located in Cluj-Napoca, a vibrant university city in the heart of Transylvania.

TINS was founded in October 2017 with the purpose of providing the institutional framework necessary for the advanced experimental research of the function of neural circuits. Presently, multiple research labs operate at TINS, benefiting from an exceptional experimental and computational infrastructure. TINS is the organizer of the Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENSS)

About the NEUROTWIN project

The EU-funded NEUROTWIN project will organize a twinning opportunity between TINS and three internationally acclaimed European institutions that will advance its neuroscientific research, increase its international visibility, and develop its intellectual property and technology transfer procedures. Overall, the project will consolidate a pole for neuroscience development in Eastern Europe by providing increased capacity to perform cutting-edge research.

NEUROTWIN means the collaboration of the young institute from Cluj, for three years, with three research institutes of international prestige:

  • Ernst Strungmann Institute for Neuroscience, (ESI) Frankfurt am Main, Germany;

  • Imagine Institut des Maladies Genetiques, (Imagine) Paris, France;

  • University College London, (UCL) London, United Kingdom.
