The Neuroscience Graduate Program is based in the Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences but offers access to the laboratories of over 35 faculty members from 10 basic science and clinical departments throughout the College of Medicine. Most students are admitted for a Doctoral degree (Ph.D.) but Masters (M.S.) students are also accepted. Basic science studies being carried out by these faculty members range from detailed molecular studies of neural genes, through electrophysiological properties of specific neuronal cells and circuits to studies of normal and addictive behaviors. Many of our Program faculty are also involved in studies of a wide variety of neurological diseases and in translational studies aimed at developing novel diagnostics and therapies.
