The Neuroscience Graduate Program is a multidisciplinary program divided into three areas: cell and molecular neuroscience, development and regeneration, and systems neuroscience.

This program awards:

  • PhD in Neuroscience

Program research relates to many human diseases and disorders, including fetal alcohol syndrome, spinal cord injury, Alzheimers, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The cell and molecular neuroscience group the regulation of gene expression in the nervous system, mechanisms of cell signaling and excitability within cells, and the molecular bases of neurological disease and disorders.

The systems neuroscience group studies the neural mechanisms underlying the functions of the olfactory system, the visual system, and motor systems in health and disease.
