"Neuroscience is a rigorous interdisciplinary study of the nervous system. It integrates the function of molecules, cells and networks as they give rise to fully formed behavioral and cognitive processes. Neuroscience training is founded in the molecular mechanisms of cellular physiology and the unique properties of neural excitable membranes and of signaling. These fundamental concepts provide the basis for understanding complex responses to internal and external environments.

Program Objectives

  • To provide training for advanced study in biomedical fields including, physiology, pharmacology, bioengineering, and medicine.
  • To provide students the opportunity to participate in original research.
  • To promote an interdisciplinary approach to scientific problem solving through the curriculum, symposia, and informal neuroscience-related events.

Students who have successfully completed this program are prepared for graduate study, careers in academic and biomedical research, medicine, and health care related fields."
