Rice Neuroscience

The Rice Neuroscience Program is a composition of courses, research opportunities, and seminars that seek to provide an education experience that can lead to exciting and rewarding career paths directly in, or related to, neuroscience.

The neuroscience minor program involves participation in core and elective courses at Rice, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center as well as research in active faculty laboratories throughout the Texas Medical Center. There are numerous related programs at Rice and nearby universities.

Northwestern Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN)

Northwestern University offers world-class advanced training in neuroscience via its Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) PhD program.

NUIN's highly interdisciplinary and collaborative program is anchored in the Feinberg School of Medicine (FSM) on NU’s Chicago campus, the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences (WCAS), the McCormick School of Engineering, and the School of Communication on the Evanston campus, as well as the Children’s Memorial Research Center (CMRC) in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago.

Ohio State Neuroscience

Ohio State Neuroscience is primarily centered in the Department of Neuroscience at the OSU School of Medicine and the Neuroscience Graduate Studies Program.

OSU Neuroscience research specializes in the following areas: Behavioral Neuroscience; Cognitive & Computational Neuroscience/Imaging; Developmental Neuroscience and Genetics; Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience; Neuro-Oncology; Neuropharmacology; Neurotrauma, Neurological Disorders, and Gene/Clinical Therapies; Stress and Neuroimmunology; and Systems Neuroscience.

Washington University Neuroscience

The Washington University Neuroscience Program offers outstanding neuroscience education for Ph.D. students and exciting research opportunities for Postdoctoral scientists.

The Program includes a broad spectrum of research laboratories that study how the brain works. Neuroscience research has included the nobel-prize winning insights of Rita Levi-Montalcini and Viktor Hamburger on formation and development of the nervous sytem, through development of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging, to current innovations in detection and treatment of Alzheimer's Disease.

University of Michigan Neuroscience

The longest-standing neuroscience graduate program in the United States, we are a collegial and interactive group that performs research across the breadth of the neuroscience field.

The University of Michigan Neuroscience program captures the excitement and interdisciplinary collaboration intrinsic to the field of neuroscience by drawing on the expertise of over 120 faculty members from more than 20 departments.Primary research fields include: Sensory & Computational Neuroscience, Developmental Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience,Behavioral Neuroscience,Molecular Neuroscience, and Clinical Neuroscience.

Institute for Translational Neuroscience

The University of Minnesta's Institute for Translational Neuroscience (ITN) grew out of the Presidential Initiative on Brain Function across the Lifespan.

The Institute is not a brick and mortar entity but an umbrella organization. The Institute's main goal has been to retain and recruit neuroscience researchers who exemplify the institute's mission to make discoveries through team work. The Institute's second goal is to foster and encourage collaboration amongst the scholars, researchers and centers.

UT System Neuroscience Institute

The U.T. BRAIN initiative funds $20 million in support of a virtual U.T. System Neuroscience and Neurotechnology Research Institute.

The institute’s purpose is to promote trans-disciplinary, multi-institutional research projects focused on neuroscience and neurotechnology challenges that will transform the fields of imaging, neurocomputation, and molecular mapping; the development of neuro-devices; and basic/translational/clinical investigations in intractable neurological diseases.

Neuroscience at University of Chicago

At The University of Chicago there are three closely interacting, interdepartmental graduate programs: the Graduate Programs in Neurobiology, Computational Neuroscience, and Integrative Neuroscience.

Some of the more significant neuroscience research centers include: the Center of Cognitive & Social Neuroscience; Center for Integrative Neuroscience and Neuroengineering; Brain Research Imaging Center; Center for Integrative Neuroscience and Neuroengineering; Center for Peripheral Neuropathy; and the Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior.

Houston Neuroscience

The University of Houston neuroscience programs include the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience program in the Department of Psychology and various centers including Center for Neuro-Engineering & Cognitive Science and the Center for Neuromotor, Biomechanics Research (CNBR). and the Brain-Machine Interface Systems Lab.

Medical College of Wisconsin – GE & NFL Head Health Challenge I Winner

Using MRI scanning technology, Center for Imaging Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin are determining the direct effects of sports-related concussions on brain structure and function.

The aim of the study is to advance the discovery of more objective biomarkers to assist in diagnosing concussion, determining when an athlete’s brain has fully recovered, and clinical decision making about the athlete’s fitness to return to play after a concussion.

Illinois Neuroscience

Neuroscience Program (NSP) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an interdisciplinary program of study and research leading to the doctoral degree. Other neuroscience related programs include the Beckman Institute and numerous research centers.

The Beckman Institute's research is focused around four research themes: Biological Intelligence, Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction, Integrative Imaging, and Molecular and Electronic Nanostructures. Researchers come from psychology, computer science, electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, and bioengineering.
