Interdisciplinary Neuroscience

A PhD program training a new generation of scientists dedicated to expanding our understanding of the nervous system.

Neuroscience Research Education

Over the past three decades, modern neuroscience has expanded our understanding of the brain and behavior and led us to recognize that all forms of disease, from cancer to infectious disease to obesity, are influenced by the nervous system. With each discovery, the field of neuroscience has rapidly expanded and flourished throughout the majority of the nation’s leading research universities. The University of Georgia is no exception.

The BHSI Division of Neuroscience aims to increase collaborative opportunities and enhance the quality and visibility of neuroscience graduate training and research at UGA, while providing support to the community of UGA scientists collectively working in the field. Recognized as an area of strength at UGA, neuroscience research currently spans 15 departments in six schools and colleges across campus. Several investigators at UGA are recognized worldwide for their research in various areas of neuroscience. The total extramural funding for neuroscience research at UGA currently exceeds $11 million.
