PhD in Neuroscience

Conquering brain diseases holds the greatest potential for changing the world. As a student in the Neuroscience PhD program at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, you will be part of a team driving innovative, life-changing scientific discoveries. Students choose our Neuroscience PhD Program to train with our world-renowned faculty in a highly collaborative and supportive environment that fosters scientific discovery in basic and clinical research within the Mount Sinai Health System.

By exploiting many different model systems – from flies, worms and fish, to mice, rats and monkeys, to the human brain itself – our students gain unprecedented insight into normal brain function, mechanisms of brain disease, and the design of targeted therapeutic strategies. You will have autonomy in pursuing your training objectives at Mount Sinai while receiving focused support and resources from compassionate faculty.
