The Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Rochester recruits and matriculates the highest quality students from around the United States and from all parts of the world. They participate in a rigorous neuroscience curriculum, attend national and international meetings, and contribute to cutting edge research. Many of our students have published manuscripts in high profile international journals and present abstracts at a host of large and small scientific meetings. In addition, our students participate as members of the curriculum, admissions, and colloquium committees, and annually present their ongoing research to fellow students and to the neuroscience community as a whole.
The Department of Neuroscience is strongly committed to its major academic missions of research and education. Over 40 faculty (primary and joint) are actively engaged in neuroscience research across broad spectrums of interests. Extensive state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodologies are available for investigators and students, both within laboratories and across a set of departmental and institutional research cores.
