The Neuroscience program of Emory University is an interdisciplinary program, spanning many departments and priding itself on a collaborative atmosphere encouraging excellence. Our faculty and students have a broad scope of research interests within neuroscience, ranging from molecular to cellular to behavioral neuroscience.


About the Program

The Neuroscience program of Emory University is one of eight PhD programs that comprise the Emory Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences (GDBBS). There are over 330 faculty members in the Division, and graduate students of any program in the Division face no departmental barriers. They can do laboratory rotations and research with any of the Division Faculty. They can also switch to one of the other programs, have an advisor from another program and take any course offered by the Division. 

This structure gives students tremendous flexibility in choosing coursework, advisors and research plans. There are about 80-100 total students enrolled in the program from year to year and the average time to finish the degree is about 6 years. Our alumni go on to successful careers in industry, academia, law and government.
