Neuroscience Graduate Program

Neuroscience Graduate Students


The graduate program in neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati was established in 1988 as an interdisciplinary program offering the PhD degree.

More than 80 faculty members from 22 departments in the colleges of medicine, pharmacy, and arts and sciences are members of the neuroscience program.

The program supports a substantial clinical translation focus, with programs investigating brain and nervous systems disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism, brain tumors, obesity, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and drug, alcohol and nicotine dependence. In addition to research training, the neuroscience graduate program offers career guidance, preparation for careers in teaching and opportunities for public outreach.

Competitive stipends, tuition scholarships and health insurance are available for all admitted students.

Outstanding candidates may also receive distinguished graduate fellowships supported by our National Institutes of Health predoctoral training program in neurosciences.
