Research Opportunities

Research is at the core of your work in Neuroscience

Whatever front door you enter to your Ph.D., you’ll have access to a full complement of facilities and equipment to pursue research in your neuroscience sub-discipline. Your coursework will introduce you to program faculty, giving you access to an array of research options while you zero in on your own approach to the field. As you make connections across neuroscience theory and applications, you’ll become aware of the many research opportunities available.
