BU Neuroscience

Boston University is creating a new Center for Integrated Life Science and Engineering (CILSE) for interdisciplinary research which will bring together outstanding scientists and engineers from across the University to work collaboratively in the areas of neuroscience and biological design.

CILSE will comprise 170,000 square feet. Its core resources will include a shared equipment facility for Cognitive Neuroimaging. Three new research Centers will be launched including the Center for Systems Neuroscience and the Center for Sensory Communication and Neural Technology.

Brandeis University

Brandeis University has a highly interactive research culture, with many cross-lab interactions and collaborations. This interactive culture begins with the rotation program: all first-year PhD students perform rotations in 4 research labs.

Brandeis has significant expertise in behavioral/cognitive neuroscience, cellular and molecular neuroscience, computational neuroscience and systems neuroscience (including the Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neuroscience), and developmental neuroscience.

Columbia Neuroscience

Columbia Neuroscience is centered around the Kavli Institute for Brain Science and the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute with 70 labs in 15 different departments.

Cumulatively, the Columbia neuroscience community of world-class neurobiologists generates more research funding than any other group in the country. Among them are two Nobel Prize winners, KIBS Director Eric Kandel and KIBS Investigator Richard Axel; 11 Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators; eight members of the National Academy of Sciences; and 13 members of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.

Cornell University Neuroscience

Neuroscience at Cornell University, Ithaca campus, emphasizes an integrated and interdisciplinary approach. The Program in Neuroscience spans several graduate fields and includes faculty affiliated with many departments.

Faculty researcg encompasses neuroscience from human cognition to biophysics, including diverse experimental and computational approaches using a variety of model organisms. Graduate students acquire expertise in their primary disciplines while cultivating a broader understanding of the bigger picture.

Harvard Neuroscience

The Program in Neuroscience draws together neuroscientists from across Harvard. The physical home base of the program is located at the Longwood Campus of Harvard Medical School, in the Department of Neurobiology.

Research sites include the Longwood Medical Area, Cambridge Campus, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the McLean Hospital. The Center for Brain Science unites many neuroscience labs and houses in the newly established Swartz Program in Theoretical Neuroscience.

MIT Neuroscience

MIT has numerous academic and research programs related to neuroscience. Key institutions include the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Department of Biological Engineering, and the MIT Media Lab.

Important neuroscience related centers include: Center for Neurobiological Engineering (CNBE); McGovern Institute Neurotechnology (MINT) program; Simons Center for the Social Brain (SCSB); Synthetic Biology Center;Picower Center for Learning and Memory; and the Martinos Imaging Center at MIT.

Yale Neuroscience

Yale University's neuroscience research and academic programs are located in the Faculty of Arts and Science and the School of Medicine.

The interdisciplinary research programs of Yale neuroscience faculty are central to Yale's Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP). Other major groups are the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience which awards grants to Yale faculty to support new research initiatives and the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Research which is dedicated to molecular and cell-based discoveries.

Rockefeller University

Centered around 76 cutting-edge laboratories working in a broad range of fields, The Rockefeller University fosters a collaborative research environment for its faculty and provides an innovative educational experience for its outstanding graduate students and postdoc researchers.

To help reduce artificial barriers and provide its investigators with the greatest degree of freedom, Rockefeller does not have academic departments. As a result, the university is not constrained to perform research in any particular field and can recruit the most accomplished and gifted investigators across a wide spectrum of disciplines in the sciences.

UMass Amherst Neuroscience

The Neuroscience and Behavior Program at UMass Amherst is an interdepartmental graduate degree-granting academic unit that brings together faculty members from various departments to provide cutting-edge research training.

Neuroscience research at UMass Amherst falls within five broadly defined areas: Neuroendocrinology; Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience; Animal Behavior and Learning; Neural and Behavioral Development; and Sensorimotor, Cognitive, and Computational Neuroscience.

SUNY Stony Brook Neuroscience

SUNY Stony Brook University's Neurosciences Institute is comprised of multi-disciplinary teams of clinical and research professionals with more than 70 laboratories actively pursuing breakthroughs in neurobiology, stroke, multiple sclerosis, autism, alzheimer's, spine and brain trauma, and behavioral neurosciences, to name a few.

The Stony Brook graduate program in Neuroscience, in the College of Arts and Sciences, offers doctoral training in neuroscience. Departments include Neurobiology and Behavior and Psychology.

NYU Neuroscience Institute

In 2011, The New York University School of Medicine established a new, state-of-the-art Neuroscience Institute, with special thanks to a $100M founding gift from the Druckenmiller Foundation.

The Institute leverages NYU's excellence in both basic science and clinical medicine. By developing strategic links and fostering innovative collaborations, we are addressing some of society's most challenging health care issues, from Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy to multiple sclerosis, psychiatric disorders, and malignant brain tumors.
