Graduate Program in Neuroscience

The Graduate Program in Neuroscience is dedicated to providing a center of excellence for the training of outstanding graduate students in the field of Neuroscience. Our Graduate Program is an interdisciplinary program of study leading to a Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience.  We look to prepare the next generation of scientists who will advance our understanding of the brain/nervous system.

Neuroscience faculty expertise and research interests range from the genome to the clinic. Our program enhances interaction among our internationally renowned faculty, and enables graduate students to take advantage of the full depth and breadth of neuroscience research conducted at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Our PhD students are highly sought after, routinely being appointed as postdoctoral fellows at prestigious institutions.
