Welcome to PiN
The Harvard PhD Program in Neuroscience, (known as PiN), spans the neuroscience community throughout Harvard University. The Program provides mentoring and advising to a close and supportive community of students who carry out PhD thesis research in laboratories in the Harvard Medical School Neurobiology department, in Harvard affiliated Hospitals, or in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Program students come from diverse scientific, personal and cultural backgrounds. More than 100 faculty members provide exciting and rigorous research training in all areas of neuroscience, and our 100+ students take full advantage of these opportunities.
We are dedicated to educating students so they develop as neuroscientists who will change science in the 21st Century and beyond. PiN provides training for neuroscience careers including academic research, science policy, biotech, pharmaceuticals, consulting, K-12 education, community education, science writing and outreach, “big data,” science policy and other developing fields. Attending graduate school at the Harvard Program in Neuroscience is a wonderful and inspiring experience. We welcome your application!
