The Department of Neurobiology leads an outstanding training program in the Neurobiology of Cognition and Cognitive Disorders (C&CD), supported by an NIH training grant (NINDS T32NS061788). The program typically funds students during their third and fourth year of graduate training in basic, translational, or clinical cognition-related neuroscience research. Our training program is tailored to provide clinical exposure along with cutting-edge training in neuroscience. Our overall goal is to train the next generation of talented, diverse, and independent scholars and leaders in cognitive neurobiology.  As the burden of cognitive disorders grows in an aging population, preparing the next generation of neuroscientists studying cognition and cognitive disorders is more important now than ever. Our program objectives include strong foundational training, multidisciplinary research approaches using next-gen tools and technologies, preparation for diverse career pathways in STEM, and training in the mechanisms for translating fundamental research into future therapeutic approaches for cognitive disorders.
