Neuroscience Graduate Program

The Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) at UTMB established in 1981 was the first Ph.D. program in neuroscience in Texas. The rich interdisciplinary program of course work and research provides an internationally competitive education that enhances a trainee's ability to become a scholarly and productive contributor to our knowledge of nervous system function and disease mechanisms.

Our goal is to graduate neuroscientists who have a broad base of experience with modern experimental skills and comprehensive knowledge background of the organization, structure and functions of nervous systems and who will seek to explore cellular and molecular mechanisms of important nervous system functions and disorders.
