Medizinstudium, PhD in Neurowissenschaften | Facharzt für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie | Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr.

René Hurlemann graduated from Medical School of Bonn University where he received his MD in 2001. In 2006, he completed an MSc in Affective Neuroscience at the Universities of Maastricht and Florence. In 2007, he obtained his PhD from Maastricht University. In 2008, he received the Board Certificate in Psychiatry and became a consultant in the department of psychiatry. At present, he is Associate Professor and Head of the Medical Psychology Division at Bonn University as well as Associate Director of the Master in Affective Neuroscience.

The research group „Neuromodulation of Emotion“ (NEMO) focusses on new pharmacological and neuromodulatory therapies in order to establish more rapid and robust methods for treating depression and anxiety. NEMO uses an integrative translational research strategy («from bedside to bench and back again»). Methodologically, NEMO combines insights from behavioral neuroscience in both animals and humans, functional neuroimaging and brain stimulation.
