Dear Prospective Students,

Hello! I am glad you visited our Neuroscience Doctoral Program website. I invite you to browse our list of faculty and department websites to see if our research areas match your interests.

Our prospective NDP students typically have a strong background in the sciences, particularly biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, psychology or neuroscience. Our students usually have strong GPAs and GREs and most have research experience related to neuroscience.  If you are excited about a small program with ample mentoring from multiple faculty in a healthy, close-knit scientific community, I strongly encourage you to apply.
