Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Ph.D.

Welcome to the interdisciplinary neuroscience graduate program!

Contemporary neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that studies the nervous system to understand the biological bases of behavior, cognition, subjective experience, psychiatric or neurological disease, and the brain’s computational processes, networks and functions. The idea of neuroscience as a dedicated and multidisciplinary branch of biology that synergistically combines physiology, anatomy, chemistry, physics, mathematical modeling, engineering, psychology and rehabilitation has resulted in a flourishing field.

The interdisciplinary neuroscience graduate (ING) program at the University of Delaware is designed to develop a unified atmosphere to expose students to the exciting developments in brain function, providing interdisciplinary training to current and future graduate students and prepare them for a research-oriented career in academics or industry.
