Cheryl Stucky, PhD, Program Director, with an NDP student

Welcome to the Neuroscience Doctoral Program at MCW!

NDP Group picture 2016The Neuroscience Doctoral Program (NDP) of the Medical College of Wisconsin is an exciting, rigorous and innovative PhD research program that provides highly motivated students from around the world with first-class training in Neuroscience Research.

Our 20 year history offers state-of-the-art research training in Neuroscience domains that range from molecular and cellular signaling to human brain imaging, in over 30 labs within 18 departments and centers, all with strong national funding. Close connections between clinical and basic faculty within our academic medical institute present many opportunities for students to conduct clinically-relevant research on diseases of the nervous system.

Our highly selective program admits on average 5 students per year, allowing the students close interactions and mentoring by our excellent faculty mentors and teachers. The program is scholarly and challenging but student-centered and flexible, and our goal is to help our students develop the knowledge, laboratory skills, critical thinking and communications skills that are essential for a successful career in Neuroscience. --Cheryl Stucky, PhD, NDP Director
