Collaborative Neuroscience Program

Neuroscience Collaborative Program

Biomedical Sciences was one of the founding Departments of the Collaborative Specialization in Neuroscience Program.  The Collaborative Specialization in Neuroscience provides a specialization for Master’s and PhD students engaged in research in the rapidly expanding field of neuroscience, by permitting students to combine their departmental degree program with multidisciplinary exposure to the field of neuroscience. This unique combination of multidisciplinary studies provides students with the best possible foundation for academic careers in neuroscience and related areas. The spcialization includes participation from core faculty in the following departments: Animal Biosciences, Biomedical Science, Clinical Studies, Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, Integrative Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Pathobiology, Population Medicine, and Psychology.  Students in the Collaborative Neuroscience Program are required to complete two neuroscience-specific graduate courses along with the course requirements for their MBS, MSc or PhD degrees.
