The Department of Neuroscience seeks insightful and energetic graduate students for the Neurobiology of Disease Ph.D. Program in Mayo Graduate School. Graduate school faculty members include 60 basic neuroscientists and clinician-scientists.

During the five-year program, students engage in laboratory-based research training with rotations at all three Mayo Clinic campuses (Arizona, Florida and Minnesota).

Core courses include biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, statistics, critical thinking and scientific writing. Students also complete track-specific courses in neuroanatomy, basic neuroscience, neurophysiology and the neurobiology of disease.

Advanced courses taught in a small group setting aim to evaluate cutting-edge research in areas such as neural development, neural aging, neurogenetics, addiction and electrophysiology.
