Our program of advanced study of the nervous system prepares doctoral students for careers in independent research and teaching in neurobiology. We seek to provide intensive training in one particular approach to neurobiological research, while also providing a strong background in other areas of neurobiology. We promote collaborative research efforts among the different disciplines to maximize the interdisciplinary nature of the student's education.
Baylor College of Medicine is ranked fifth in the nation in funding for neuroscience research from the National Institutes of Health.
We have state-of-the-art research facilities for molecular neurobiology, neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, biophysics, behavioral neuroscience, optical imaging, functional human brain imaging and computer science.
