"Yale Neuroscience is home to scientists whose interests span the entire breadth of the field, ranging from those aiming to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular function (and dysfunction) of cells of the nervous system, to others using neuroimaging to understand the neural mechanisms of complex human behaviors, and everything in between. The interdepartmental nature of the program enables scientific discussion across labs in different disciplines, opening the doors to unique collaborative opportunities. As a graduate student in the neuroscience track and in the BBS, there are countless activities that further enhance our training, including bi-weekly journal clubs and student research talks, mentoring sessions with older students and faculty, networking happy hours, small-group lunches with visiting faculty, among many others. Through all of these opportunities, I have found myself surrounded by some of the most brilliant and insightful current and future leaders in the field of neuroscience, and have really been able to experience the rich sense of community that Yale Neuroscience has to offer."

Please Note!

On Monday November 23, 2020, from 5:30 – 7:30pm, the Yale BBS Neuroscience Track will be hosting an informal Get To Know the Neuroscience Track zoom event for prospective applicants to hear from students and faculty about the program and life at Yale. Please feel free to drop in and meet us!

Here is the registration link: https://forms.gle/XRfKXVL38vUVoTH59

We look forward to meeting you!

The Neuroscience Track seeks to produce neuroscientists with both specialized knowledge and a broad-based understanding of the discipline. A Ph.D. degree in neuroscience is offered by the university-wide Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP), a unified graduate program founded in 1986 and jointly administered by all the participating departments of the Neuroscience Track.

The first-year student curriculum, revised and updated in 2018, provides the comprehensive coursework needed to pursue the PhD.
