NeuroData - International Master in Brain and Data Science



In modern science, breakthroughs often occur at the intersection of multiple disciplines. NeuroData, a pioneering, innovative MSc in Brain and Data Science, aims to create impact through multidisciplinary research and educational innovation.

This holistic approach to students’ training will enable them to forge new mindsets and approaches while increasing individual contributions to a knowledge-based economy and society. The possibilities for ground-breaking, cutting-edge discoveries are enormous.

The integrated multidisciplinary brain and data science curriculum will cultivate researchers with in-depth knowledge in both fields.


The first year of the program is spent at Bar-Ilan University. All students from multidisciplinary backgrounds receive essential training in neuroscience and data science tailored according to their undergraduate studies and designed to bring all students to the same level in both subjects. During this year, students will be integrated into the vibrant teaching and research environment of the Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center.

This will be followed by two compulsory weeks at the University of Zagreb for a tailor-made summer school program for the NeuroData degree. The aim of the summer school is to expose students to advanced neuroscience and data science topics, enable them to present their progress and finalize a thesis mentor, meet professors and mentors from the partner universities, and have fun and socialize.

Students will spend the second year at one of the four partner institutions studying their sub-specialty of choice and working on a research thesis.
