The Graduate Program in Neuroscience (GPN) at the University of Minnesota is a large interdisciplinary PhD program, made up of over 125 faculty members. Our goal is to provide training in neuroscience research across a broad range of techniques and disciplines, 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 are an interdisciplinary program, with a productive and engaged faculty, committed to providing a supportive environment so that students can achieve their full potential.
Our faculty are from 30 different departments and have a wide range of research interests and expertise. A complete list of faculty can be found here.
We support a number of programs that bring neuroscience into the community, such as Brain Awareness Week, Brains at the State Fair, and the Minnesota State Brain Bee.
