Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience at Arizona State University!

The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Ph.D. Program admits one entering cohort annually for programs of study beginning in the fall semester. The deadline for applications is the December 15 for admittance into the following academic year. The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Ph.D. Program usually notifies applicants of admissions status no later than the following April 15th.

Our goal is to provide an interdisciplinary program for training graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. We emphasize approaches that integrate several levels of analysis, molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, cognitive - to investigate basic, translational and clinical questions about the relationship between brain and behavior. Students have the flexibility to tailor a program of study to meet their specific professional goals. We use an array of animals for understanding how nervous systems become adapted to their environments and as models for human neurological conditions. Visit the Neuroscience faculty listing for more information.

Based on your area of research interest, spend time studying specific Neuroscience faculty members (you will find them under Faculty on the left-hand side of this web site). Please list THREE faculty members who would be appropriate to review your file and to make recommendations about your qualifications and suitability for the program.

List the names of the faculty members — first and last name only — in the order in which you would be interested in them as your faculty mentor in the space provided.
