PhD Program

The Neuroscience Graduate Program is administered by The Institute for Neuroscience (INS), a campus-wide organization responsible for research and teaching activities related to the neurosciences. The Program is multidisciplinary with more than 70 participating neuroscientists from 13 departments and is designed to promote interdisciplinary training and interaction. Research at the INS is diverse with investigators covering all major disciplines and techniques in neuroscience and representing a broad range of research interests, from molecular neuroscience and genetics, through physiology, cellular and systems research, to cognition and behavior and the neurobiology of disease. Because of the outstanding and diverse composition of the INS faculty, our graduate students are provided with unparalleled opportunities for research and are trained to become critical thinkers capable of understanding the full breadth of conceptual and technical approaches to neuroscience.
