Graduate Study

Graduate study in neuroscience is designed to educate and train scientists who will become leaders in the field and contribute to society through research, teaching, and professional service.

The core of the graduate training involves close interaction with faculty to develop expertise in biological, behavioral, and theoretical aspects of neuroscience. Graduate research and training are carried out in the laboratories of the program’s faculty. These faculty trainers lead outstanding, well-funded research programs that use cutting edge technology to explore the nervous system.

PhD Programs in Neuroscience

The Brown-NIH Graduate Program Partnership allows participants to take advantage of the best of two worlds - the prestigious academic environment of Brown University and the breadth and depth of research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
