Our alumni have outstanding positions in schools of medicine, university basic science departments, liberal arts colleges, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies, consulting firms, and in scientific publishing. We offer training across the breadth of basic and clinical neuroscience including use of state of the art methodologies to study nervous system function. Collegiality, collaboration and enhancement of personal career development are integral parts of all neuroscience curriculum educational and research activities.
