Neuroscience Ph.D. Program
For prospective students, our Neuroscience Ph.D. Program is one of the nation's leading programs in the predoctoral training of neuroscience. We offer opportunities that span the breadth of contemporary neuroscience in laboratories conducting basic, translational and clinical research.
Graduates of our department are superbly prepared for a variety of career options in both academia and industry.
Our research is a culmination of neuroscience-related endeavors unfolding across Vanderbilt's five colleges. Faculty, staff, students and trainees from multiple fields of study are actively involved in projects that seek to advance our understanding of the brain.
We play a major role in shaping neuroscience-related activities on the Vanderbilt campus by facilitating a weekly seminar series, showcasing student achievements and hosting guest speakers to keep our community current and informed.
We actively engage with the public to keep our community aware, informed and empowered about VBI's achievements in neuroscience, and partner with schools and organizations to support and nurture the next generation of scientists.
