Graduate Neuroscience Training Program

Graduate Neuroscience Training Program

Neuroscience has reached an extraordinarily exciting stage. Disciplines such as physics, biology, genetics, chemistry, psychology, anatomy, computer science, medicine and engineering, to name a few, are now powering discoveries at a rapid pace that reveal the basis of how we learn, think, remember, love and dream. These discoveries provide hope to millions with brain disorders that better diagnoses and treatments are within reach.

As part of a visionary strategic plan, Florida Atlantic University is investing its energies and resources in cross-disciplinary programs of neuroscience research and education, coordinated by the FAU Brain Institute. With substantial investments from federal, state, foundation and philanthropic sources, the Brain Institute and its partners are expanding our research infrastructure, faculty breadth, and community commitments to insure the training of high caliber students. We are confident that these investments will allow FAU to realize its potential as a truly remarkable hub for neuroscience research and education.

The Graduate Neuroscience Training Program unites scientists, educators and students from three FAU Ph.D. programs (Integrative Biology-Neuroscience, Complex Systems and Brain Sciences, Experimental Psychology), and from two internationally-recognized research institutes (the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Scripps Research Institute), into a one of a kind training opportunity for those at the beginning stages of their neuroscientific careers. Without a doubt, FAU Neuroscience is on the move, and we hope you will join us...
