Abstract Karolinska Institutet is one of the founding members of the International Alliance for Translational Neuroscience, IATN. This alliance was established in Beijing in 2012 and it presently includes seven members worldwide. Karolinska Institutet has a long tradition in research on the nervous system. Early on it was mainly represented by the Department of Neurophysiology and the Nobel Laureate Ragnar Granit, and the Department of Physiology, where Ulf von Euler, also a Nobel Laureate, carried out pioneering work on catecholamines, substance P and prostaglandins (see Grant G: The Nobel Prizes in the Field of Neuroscience which was published in the same issue). Today two departments are specifically devoted to this field, the Department of Neuroscience and the Department of Clinical Neuroscience. In addition, this field of research is explored at the Departments of Physiology and Pharmacology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, as well as at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society. All together neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet represents a very strong discipline.
