The Department of Neurobiology currently has 18 faculty with substantial research strengths in neural development, circuit function, computation, cellular communication through receptors, channels and synapses and neurological and psychiatric diseases. The Department 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.
Total research grant funding for the primary faculty of $6.8 million dollars was received in FY 2008. Under the direction of Dr. Lorna Role, who arrived as Chair in April 2008, the department looks forward to continued growth, expansion and innovation.
If you consider yourself a Postdoc in training, regardless of your title, you are welcome to participate in our program.
