A cornerstone of the Emory Neuroscience program is the incredible sense of academic community that our participants enjoy. Our program was ranked #1 for overall student satisfaction in the National Doctoral Program Survey, in part due to the high level of interaction between faculty and students and a mentoring system which creates a supportive atmosphere for success.
The Emory Neuroscience program is structured to encourage a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to solving challenging research questions, with interdisciplinary Center Grants and a joint program in Hybrid Neural Microsystems with neighboring Georgia Tech.
Excellence in Research
Emory students and faculty are working on the cutting edge of neuroscience, with numerous recent high-impact publications on molecular and genetic mechanisms of social bonding, reward and salience processing in the striatum, computational modeling of neurons, cannabanoids in fear extinction, and more. Students have access to a wealth of research resources, including sixteen high-tech Research Core Facilities and a host of highly accomplished faculty including four National Academy members, thirteen members of the prestigious American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, and faculty trained in the labs of Nobel Laureates Sol Snyder, Paul Greengard, and Linda Buck.
