Brandeis University is an exciting place for Neuroscience
research and study because we have an outstanding and highly
interactive research community. The Neuroscience laboratories
are housed within the Volen
Center, the Shapiro Science Center and adjoining buildings, and this close proximity
facilitates the high degree of collaboration and exchange
for which Brandeis has become famous. There are presently
23 Neuroscience faculty found in four participating departments
(Biology, Biochemistry, Psychology, and Chemistry). There
are today over 45 Neuroscience Program Ph.D. students,
who often work side-by-side with Ph.D. students in the other
Life Sciences graduate programs at Brandeis.
The Brandeis Life Sciences offers a M.S. program and a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience.
