Neuroscience Graduate Program Director’s Message

The Neuroscience Graduate Program at Loyola University Chicago Health Systems rigorously prepares students for a competitive and productive career in neuroscience. Using an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary approach, our students have an exceptionally broad choice of mentors and neuroscience-related research projects (see below) on which to advance their careers.

Our students begin working towards their degree in neuroscience by first demonstrating a competent understanding of a broad base of knowledge by taking a spectrum of core courses required of all IPBS students. After selecting a research mentor at the end of the first year, neuroscience students may formally declare the Neuroscience Graduate Program as their academic track of choice. Beginning the second year, neuroscience students can choose elective courses which are designed to develop specialization and strength in one particular area of neuroscience. Each neuroscience student is thus exposed to various situations where he or she learns how to express their ideas effectively. Throughout their training, neuroscience students have the opportunity to interact and work closely with faculty and to receive individualized attention that continues until degree completion.

Loyola University Chicago Health Systems Neuroscience Graduate Program provides a rich, stimulating, and one-on-one supportive research atmosphere that enable students to appreciate the whole spectrum of neuroscience research, from the molecular to the behavioral.

Thank you for considering Loyola University Chicago Health Systems Neuroscience Graduate Program. On behalf of our faculty and staff, we wish you all the best as you embark on your journey to becoming a neuroscientist.

If you have further questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact me either by email, or by phone (708-216-3361).
