Welcome to the Neuroscience Graduate Program!

The Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Cincinnati was established in 1988 as an interdisciplinary program offering the PhD degree and now has more than 80 participating faculty members from 22 departments in the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Arts & Sciences.

The program encourages a focus on clinical translation and offers multiple areas of concentration: Stress & Neuropsychiatric Disorders, Developmental Neurobiology, Pain, Sensory Neuroscience, Stroke & Neural Trauma, Metabolism & Obesity, Epilepsy, Cognitive Development, and Motivation & Drugs of Abuse. In addition to scholarship and laboratory training in high impact research within state-of-the-art facilities, the Neuroscience Graduate Program offers guidance and support for a wide range of professional careers.

Competitive stipends, tuition scholarships, and health insurance are provided to all admitted students. Outstanding candidates may also receive distinguished graduate fellowships supported by our National Institutes of Health neuroscience predoctoral training grant.

NGP Student Drew Winter
Congratulations to the NGP's Drew Winter, who achieved second place in UC's Three-Minute Thesis competition.  The event was part of Research Week, which was held April 17-21 at the College of Medicine.  The Three-Minute Thesis requires students to explain their research projects to a layperson audience in three or fewer minutes - a true test of effective scientific communication.
NGP student Elizabeth Nguyen
Congratulations to the NGP's Elizabeth Nguyen, one of only five outstanding PhD students from across the University who was awarded a Graduate Student Fellowship.  This award provides funding and mentorship through small-group interactions with senior faculty from diverse disciplines. The goal of this program is to fully integrate Graduate Student Fellows into the academic environment and, by exposing them to the benefits, opportunities and challenges of an academic career, to prepare and energize awardees for securing tenure-track positions.
