Neuroscience at The University of Chicago

The Graduate Program in Neurobiology

There has never been a more exciting time to study neurobiology. Novel molecular, cellular, systems-level, and computational techniques are now used to explore the functions of the brain to an extent that was unforeseen only a short time ago. More than ever before, it is critical to work in an environment that fosters an interdisciplinary scientific and technical approach to neurobiology. The University of Chicago's Graduate Program in Neurobiology, with more than 60 faculty members using state-of-the-art techniques, is such a place.

The Graduate Program in Neurobiology is a large, interdisciplinary program dedicated to graduate education in neurobiology. All students receive concentrated attention from faculty who serve as mentors, advisory committee members and course instructors. Research strengths at The University of Chicago include molecular neurobiology, cellular neurophysiology, developmental neurobiology, systems neuroscience and computational neurobiology.

The interdisciplinary and collaborative organization at The University of Chicago makes for a vibrant and diverse community that is committed to exploring new frontiers in neurobiology research. Please search through our list of faculty and research topics to find out more.
