The Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Stony Brook University offers
a university-wide predoctoral training program designed to provide broad training
opportunities for students interested in careers in the neurosciences. Students
can enter from their undergraduate training or through the MD/PhD program.
The graduate program provides a broad educational background in neurobiology,
experience in teaching, and the opportunity to pursue original doctoral research
in one of over 40 laboratories. The program includes scientists at SUNY Stony
Brook, recently ranked number two in the Graham/Diamond study of public research
institutions, at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, an internationally renowned
private research institute, and at Brookhaven National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary
research facility of the U.S. Department of Energy.
