The Curriculum in Neurobiology is an interdepartmental, interdisciplinary training program leading to a PhD degree in Neurobiology. We represent 15 different departments and specialized research centers, but we are united in our interest in understanding the brain, neurons, glia, nervous systems, behavior, neurological disease, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Our program has outstanding courses, broad training in scientific communication skills, and diverse research areas to pursue during rotations and dissertation research. Currently we have 61 core faculty.
