All graduates will be able to:

To enable students to develop as successful professionals for highly competitive positions in academia, industry, and government, the program aims to provide a variety of  experiences that help students to:

  • Develop expertise in appropriate concepts, theories, and emerging methodologies in neurobiology to fully understand how the brain and nervous system functions  through studies ranging from the molecular (small molecules, peptides, proteins, and other molecules important to the function of the nervous system), through the  cellular (especially neuronal and glial cells), to the systems level (neural regulation of key physiological processes).”
  • Present research to local, regional, national, and international audiences through publications in professional journals and conference papers given in a range of  venues, from graduate seminars to professional meetings.

Career Opportunities:

Students completing their MS degree in Veterinary Sciences: IPN can continue on to complete a PhD degree, or enter directly into a research career in a government, academic or industry laboratory (pharmaceutical or other biotech).
