NGP Faculty

Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) faculty are committed to mentoring students pursuing BS/MS, MS or PhD degrees within their active lab groups that also include postdoctoral fellows, technicians, and undergraduate students.  NGP  faculty have strong records of funding from NIH, NSF and a variety of private foundations.  Their research interests, also noted below, reflect the breadth and depth of the NPG and highlight the many exciting opportunities open to students.  Prospective applicants should contact Dr. Mark Grimes, who serves as the Director of the NGP and welcomes inquiries from interested students.
