About Stanford Neurosciences

The Stanford Neurosciences Interdepartmental Program uses rigorous training in fundamental principles of neuroscience research to develop leaders at every level of our society. The signature feature of the Stanford Neurosciences Program is the combination of outstanding faculty researchers and exceedingly bright, energetic students in a community that shares a firm and longstanding commitment to understanding the nervous system at all its levels of function.

Since 1962, the philosophy of the the interdepartmental PhD Program is to offer a single program to train future leaders in neuroscience, with directors and faculty from all relevant departments, rather than several small competing departments. 

The Neurosciences Ph.D. program is one of 14 Biosciences Home Programs in the Stanford School of Medicine.
