We study how the nervous system works - how it is built, how it operates on cellular and systems levels, how drugs affect it, and how it is damaged in neurodegenerative diseases. Our faculty members continue to make cutting edge contributions to neurobiology research, attracting significant research grants from leading government agencies and charitable foundations. At the same time, the Department of Neurobiology is dedicated to cultivating youn
The purpose of the Graduate Program in Neurobiology is to enable talented students to explore the nervous system at this level. Neuroscience at Duke is pursued in a variety of departments and settings, all of which are possible sites for students to train in this field. Students in the Graduate Program in Neurobiology take a core curriculum that covers the major concepts of contemporary neurobiology, but are generally free to pursue with the help
Graduate students in the Department of Neurobiology obtain the Ph.D. degree through the interdepartmental Neurosciences Ph.D. program. Accepted students receive funding for tuition and a living stipend. Applicants should familiarize themselves with the research interests of the faculty and, if possible, indicate their preference on the application form which is submitted directly to the Neurosciences Program. Medical students also are encourag
