Neuroscience Collaborative is Formed

The neuroscience (NS) subprogram of the Graduate Center's doctoral program in biology and the behavioral and cognitive neuroscience (BCN) training area of the Graduate Center's doctoral program in psychology have joined forces to form theCUNY Neuroscience Collaborative.

Training the next generation of research neuroscientists requires that graduate students be provided with an unusually broad range of didactic course work spanning the disciplines of biology and psychology and that they have the opportunity to undertake research training in any of many neuroscience subdisciplines (e.g. molecular/cellular/developmental neuroscience, neurochemistry and neuropharmacology, neuropathology, cellular and systems-oriented neurophysiology, functional imaging, cognition and behavior, animal models of psychiatric disorders).

The CUNY Neuroscience Collaborative was formed in order to take advantage of the expertise of faculty across traditional doctoral program boundaries for teaching the broad core curriculum, to develop a sense of community among trainees across subdisciplines and campuses, and to provide the necessary diversity of research training opportunities to doctoral students who will be tomorrow’s leaders in neuroscience.
