Ph.D. Program in Molecular Biology and Genetics
With a Concentration in Neuroscience
Designed for Ph.D. students with a particular interest in neuroscience and an emphasis in genetic and molecular approaches, this concentration combines a creative curriculum and a research experience guided by Center faculty who work in the forefront of translational neuroscience.
The neuroscience option curriculum uses a series of new courses offered by the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics.
In addition to their coursework, Ph.D. students complete 3 research rotations during their first year in the program, and then begin their Ph.D. dissertation research starting in the summer before their second year. Faculty research interests are listed here.
