Neuroscience research and education at NC State is rapidly growing. We believe that fundamental scientific insights occur when scientists are allowed to work in a flexible, collaborative, and intellectually adventurous atmosphere that allows for convergence and integration across multiple disciplines. Our goal is to prepare our graduate students to be world class scientists and leaders, unafraid of tackling the most significant scientific challenge of our era: integrating across the genetic, molecular, cellular, physiological, and organismal levels to understand how the nervous system enables and changes function and behavior.
