Thank you for your interest in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Wake. We are proud to include 93 faculty members from 16 different departments in the program. With them, 40 current graduate students and 12 postdoctoral fellows study how the brain and the nervous system work, how they develop, and how they can be affected by the environment and by disease. Our program offers training opportunities in state-of-the-art research that span virtually all areas of modern neuroscience, including molecular, developmental and behavioral neurobiology, as well as cognitive and computational neuroscience. These resources, along with our open and collaborative environment, translate into a wide range of personal and professional opportunities for young neuroscientists.

On behalf of the Neuroscience Program,
