The Program in Neuroscience (PiN) is a full-time lab-based PhD program comprising a core curriculum that encompasses the interrelated disciplines of neuroscience, elective requirements in computational neuroscience and neuroanatomy, and training across multiple research areas and techniques through first-year lab rotations and dissertation research supported by a robust advising structure. The program also offers an optional certificate track in computational neuroscience.
Our students come from a wide range of racial, cultural, socio-economic, and academic backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common: they are driven by their passion for scientific research. They bring curiosity, vision, grit, and resilience to experimental design and implementation in a research and learning environment characterized by collegiality and collaboration. They learn how to ask scientific questions, design and drive research projects, optimize mentorship opportunities, and carve their own career path while collectively striving to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the scientific community to shape a better future for all. If this sounds like you and what you’re looking for in a graduate program, we’d love to hear from you!
