The mission of the Department of Neuroscience is to advance knowledge through outstanding research focused on understanding nervous system function in health and disease and to educate and train the next generation of neuroscientists. We believe these goals are best achieved by broadening opportunities in science and building a more diverse and inclusive neuroscience community. Department faculty and students have myriad interests and expertise across the field of neuroscience, from genes to cognition. Our research includes developing new technologies, both computational and neurotechnological, to visualize, map and manipulate neuronal function. We take great pride in teaching and training scientists at all career stages,- including undergraduate, graduate, and medical students, as well as post-doctoral scholars. Our nationally renowned Neuroscience Graduate Programs include a partnership program with the National Institutes of Health. Our undergraduate concentration, one of the oldest and most prestigious in the nation, introduces students to the wonders of the nervous system through a broad and interdisciplinary variety of classroom, seminar, and laboratory experiences. Our graduate students are highly successful at applying their expertise and skills in neuroscience-related careers in academia, industry, and business. Our educational missions are supported by NIH training grants for graduate and postdoctoral fellows studying neuroscience and vision sciences. The mission of the Department is enhanced by a close partnership with the Carney Institute for Brain Science, a multidisciplinary consortium of over 200 faculty from 20 basic and clinical science departments, centers and schools. The Institute promotes collaborative theoretical and experimental research of the brain and nervous system.
