I chose the NSC program for it's emphasis on translational research. During the interview weekend the students seemed to have the best work-life balance of all the schools I interviewed. The students have a strong support network in each other, which I think is important in graduate school, especially in a new city. more ...
Research interests of the faculty span all major themes in contemporary neuroscience including
- Cell Signaling & Communications
- Learning, Memory, & Adaptive Plasticity
- Neurobiology of Disease
- Neurodevelopment & Aging
- Sensory, Motor, & Integrative Systems Neuroscience
- Stem Cells, Neuroregeneration, & Repair
Extensive collaborations within and across these themes are a hallmark of the program, providing students the opportunity to design thesis projects without regard to traditional boundaries. Interactions are fostered and strengthened by a host of interdisciplinary research centers.
Students enter our program with diverse backgrounds and interests, but they share a passion for discovery and an intense curiosity about the workings of the nervous system. The Neuroscience Graduate Program builds on this passion by providing the state-of-the-art training students need to become successful researchers and educators.
