Neuroscience is a rapidly expanding branch of the life sciences dealing with the form, function, development and evolution, disease and repair of nervous systems.
Central to this is the desire to understand the molecular and cellular foundations of the behavioural processes that allow animals and humans to respond to challenges encountered in daily life. Advancing our knowledge of these topics is essential to meeting the challenges of various nervous system disorders threatening health and wellness.
Our program is a vibrant, interdisciplinary program providing experiential learning, small class sizes, and opportunities for direct mentorship. Students will learn to think critically, synthesize concepts across scientific disciplines and master a variety of scientific techniques through research in laboratory and field course settings.
