About

The Graduate Program in Neuroscience, in the College of Arts and Sciences at Stony Brook University, offers doctoral training in the rapidly expanding field of neuroscience. Through coursework and independent research, students are trained to approach research problems in neuroscience with a broad perspective. 

Overview

Key Features

The MS in Biomedical Science (Neuroscience track) program at Stony Brook University prepares students to conduct, analyze and communicate Neuroscience research. Students will be exposed to advanced neuroscience research techniques, approaches and theory culminating with the MS degree. Core concepts and skills are taught through a series of required core courses, with the remaining coursework consisting of advanced electives and special topics courses.

Expertise in the areas of molecular and biochemical control of development, properties of receptors and ion channels in relation to cellular physiology, the cellular basis of integrative functions, and the structural basis for communication among neurons are available to all students in the program. Students will receive in-depth research training in molecular, biochemical, physiological, behavioral, computational or anatomical sciences. A program of highly interactive faculty and students provides an exciting focus for research training.

Graduate students will receive in-depth research training in molecular, biochemical, physiological, behavioral, or anatomical sciences. In addition the Program offers unique opportunities to draw from one or more of these disciplines through multidisciplinary, cosponsored research projects. A program of highly interactive faculty and students provides an exciting focus for research training.
