Welcome to Neuroscience at Boston University School of Medicine. The Medical School has over 50 faculty members in the neurosciences who are based throughout the Medical Campus. The School offers a rich, biomedically-based neuroscience environment in which students can participate in state-of-the-art neuroscience research. Graduate training in neuroscience at Boston University is administered by the Graduate Program for Neuroscience (GPN).
Please see http://www.bu.edu/neuro for the latest information on this University wide training mission as well as the collaborative training efforts of GPN with the departments of Anatomy and Neurobiology and Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.
Admission to the Joint Program in Biomedical Neuroscience
Graduate students who have already applied for admission to Anatomy and Neurobiology or Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, and who also wish to study neuroscience at BUSM, will apply for admission to the Biomedical Neuroscience specialization (administered by the Graduate Program for Neuroscience (GPN)) either at the time of their application, or during their first academic year. Any student who meets the criteria for acceptance into the participating departments, and who also expresses a commitment to meet the requirements of the Graduate Program for Neuroscience joint training venture (see http://www.bu.edu/neuro/graduate/ad/) will be eligible for acceptance.
