From the second round of applications, Andrew Sharott’s application as new Einstein BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellow was approved for funding by the Board of Directors of the Berlin University Alliance in July. An associate professor at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford, Sharott's research interests include neuronal and hormonal brain disorders, deep brain stimulation, and treatments for Parkinson's disease.

As part of his BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellowship, Andrew Sharott plans to combine resources and expertise from the Einstein Center for Neuroscience and the NeuroCure Cluster of Excellence, among others, to use brain frequency measurement to target deep brain stimulation therapy without interference.

In addition to the BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellowship, the Einstein Foundation Berlin is funding numerous other new research projects in the integrated research space of the Berlin University Alliance with a total of more than eight million euros. These include an Einstein Center for Population Diversity, in which Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität Berlin, in a consortium with the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Social Science Research Center Berlin, the Population Europe network and the University of Oxford, among others, will investigate opportunities and risks arising from increasing diversity in European societies until 2029.
