Program in Neuroscience
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 130 faculty members provide exciting and rigorous research training in all areas of neuroscience, and our 100+ students take full advantage of these opportunities.
