The UC Davis Center for Neuroscience is home to one of the premier graduate training programs in the United States.
Center for Neuroscience graduate students come from a wide array of Graduate Groups. Each Graduate Group has independent administration and bylaws specific to the training of its students. They also have differing course and rotation requirements. Students from all Graduate Groups with an interest in neuroscience research are encouraged to apply to laboratories within the Center for Neuroscience.
