Our Neuroscience graduate program provides rigorous, multidisciplinary and highly collaborative training that emphasizes translational and transformative discoveries about the molecules, cells, circuits and behaviors that constitute nervous system function in health and disease. Here you will find a world-class faculty spanning multiple Departments, Institutes and Centers who investigate brain structure and function in a variety of model systems (e.g. worms, flies, rodents, non-human primates), as well as the human brain itself, using sophisticated approaches that are at the forefront of technological and conceptual advances.

"The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai announced today, that it will join a growing group of schools by “exiting the GRE” (#GRExit). The GRE is not a reliable predictor of success and scores are skewed based on sex, race and socioeconomic status of the test-takers. Requiring the test discriminates against subsets of applicants without the means of access to the often costly test preparation while, simultaneously, biases admissions outcomes in favor of those applicants who do. Discontinuing the GRE requirement is a critical step towards a more unbiased admissions process, but importantly, it is a necessary step to ensure diversity in Graduate School representation. We applaud schools that have joined us and encourage those who haven’t to do so."
