The Neurosciences Graduate Program currently includes more than 130 faculty, whose research interests are described on this website. There are approximately 70 graduate students and over 60 postdoctoral scholars.

The common purpose of all the participants in the Neurosciences Graduate Program is to foster and maintain a community of excellence in study and research in neuroscience, and to develop creative and innovative scientific research that leads to productive and successful careers.

Students interested in clinically relevant research may want to explore the Med-into-Grad program, which provides clinical training to graduate students.

In addition, UC San Diego's Graduate Specialization in Anthropogeny is also available to Neurosciences graduate students.
