Neuroscience Graduate Program

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 pre-doctoral training grant.

We invite you to learn more about our program and all UC has to offer.
