Research on the brain spans many levels, from molecules to behavior, and touches on many different fields of inquiry. Graduate students interested in neuroscience may work with faculty mentors by enrolling in one of several different PhD programs, depending on their precise interests.

The different programs focus on different levels of analysis of the nervous system, ranging from cellular and molecular to systems to cognitive and behavioral approaches. Training is coordinated and involves an overlapping set of coursework as well as common social events, colloquia, and retreats open to all students. The neuroscience graduate program at Duke is designed to educate the next generation of neuroscientists, poised to discover new and exciting aspects of brain function and behavior.
