Neuroscience at Stony Brook The Graduate Program in Neuroscience at Stony Brook University offers multi-institutional-based training programs for students interested in careers in the neurosciences leading to an MS, Ph.D or MD/PhD degree. Students can enter the Graduate Program in Neuroscience from their undergraduate training or through the MD/PhD program at Stony Brook University.The Graduate Program provides broad education in neuroscience, experience in teaching, and the opportunity to pursue original thesis research in over forty laboratories. The program faculty includes neuroscientists at Stony Brook University, recently ranked number two in the Graham/Diamond study of public research universities; at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a renowned private research institute; and at Brookhaven National Laboratory, a leading multidisciplinary research facility of the US Department of Energy. Research Facilities The Graduate Neuroscience Program is centered in the Stony Brook University Department of Neurobiology and Behavior and includes faculty members from a wide range of university departments including Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychiatry, Neurology, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Psychology. Additional ties with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory further enrich the research and academic environments in neuroscience. As a result Master's and Ph.D students have diverse opportunities for laboratory research and collaboration. Students also have at their disposal numerous onsite, cutting edge core facilities including: imaging (e.g., light and electron microscopy, fluorescence measurements on both conventional, confocal and multi-photon microscopes, and brain mapping with MRI and PET) behavioral testing (human, rodent, fish), electrophysiology (in vivo and in vitro, single and multiunit, intra and extracellular), proteomics, cell culture, genomics, stem cell and viral production cores. Student Outcomes New graduates accept diverse appointments in neuroscience at teaching and/or research institutions, government agencies, or in the private sector (e.g., industry and communications).
