Welcome to the GPN!

The Graduate Program in Neuroscience (GPN) at the University of Minnesota is a large interdisciplinary PhD program, made up of over 100 faculty. Our goal is to provide the students with a broad and deep understanding of Neuroscience, ranging from the molecular and genetic level to computational. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, our program is a highly collaborative and collegial environment in which to train.

We support a number of programs that bring neuroscience into the community, such as Brain Awareness WeekBrains at the State Fair, and the Minnesota State Brain Bee.
