The Center for NeuroScience (CNS) brings together researchers, physicians and community members with a common interest in neuroscience to collaborate and share valuable resources. Our members share common goals of promoting graduate education in neuroscience, increasing both lab and clinical applications of neuroscience, and educating the community about neuroscience projects and clinical trials within the School of Medicine.

Those interested specifically in the education arm of the Neuroscience program, go to the Neuroscience Graduate Training Program website.
