Program Description:

The objective of the Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) is to provide an internationally competitive educational program in neuroscience leading to the Ph.D. degree. The rich interdisciplinary program of course work and research is designed to enhance a trainee's ability to become a scholarly and productive contributor to our knowledge of nervous system function. It is anticipated that our graduates will become teachers and/or researchers in the field of neuroscience in academic institutions, industry, biotechnology or government. The program is designed to be rigorous but flexible and is explicitly multidisciplinary. Research can be done in areas ranging from molecules to excitable membranes to behavior, using preparations ranging from cell cultures to isolated ganglia to brain slices to intact nervous systems of invertebrates and vertebrates.
