Neuroscience Faculty are involved in training graduate students in the following Graduate Programs.
Please click on the links below for the graduate program of interest for more information.
Physiology Graduate Training Program
To prepare graduate students for future careers, the Physiology Graduate Training Program provides
doctoral training in mechanistic studies of important cellular and systems processes.
Students gain knowledge and expertise through formal course work, doctoral research
in the laboratories of their research mentors, journal clubs and seminars,
and organized experiences in public speaking and teaching.
Neuroscience Training Program
The program is designed to prepare students for careers in research and teaching.
Training leads to the Ph.D. degree in neuroscience or the M.D./Ph.D. degree in
cooperation with the School of Medicine and Public Health.
Clinical Neuroengineering Training Program
The objective of this program is to educate a new cadre of scientists and engineers
to generate new fundamental understandings of neuroscience and translate these findings
to clinical treatment. The training will cross traditional boundaries to develop
individuals skilled in clinical, scientific, and engineering approaches to advancing neuroscience.
Trainees receive Ph.D. degrees in their chosen field, such as biomedical engineering, neuroscience,
medical physics, physiology, or a growing list of other fields in which faculty trainers are available.
Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program
CMB provides students the opportunity to work with more than 170 CMB faculty trainers in over 40 different departments,
on a campus known for interdepartmental cooperation and collaboration.
Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Graduate Program
The objective of the Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology is to equip
students with the skills required to conduct state-of-the-art biomolecular, biomedical,
and pharmacological basic research.
The Program assists students in becoming independent investigators in these research areas.
Stem Cell Research Program
UW-Madison has numerous educational and training programs related to stem cell biology,
developmental biology and regenerative medicine.
Opportunities range from coursework and formal degree programs to post-doctoral fellowships.
Biomedical Engineering Program
The Biomedical Engineering Program offers graduate sequences leading to the master of science (MS)
and doctor of philosophy (PhD) degrees in biomedical engineering.
Biomedical Engineering participates in the University of Wisconsin Medical Scientist Training Program,
which leads to a combined MD/PhD degree.
The BME graduate program should be of interest to students who wish to practice engineering
or engage in research in an engineering specialization in medicine and biology.
Biophysics and Molecular Biophysics Graduate Programs
Graduate training in Biophysics is organized through two distinct but
very closely allied programs: the Biophysics Graduate Degree Program,
which confers the Ph.D. in Biophysics to its graduates, and the Molecular Biophysics Training Program,
a program built around an NIH NRSA Institutional Training Grant awarded through the
National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
Training Program in Translational Cardiovascular Science
The mission of this program is to attract individuals to careers that include cardiovascular research
and to train them in research that is motivated and informed by clinical practice.
In order to achieve this, the program offers predoctoral and postdoctoral (both MD and Ph.D.)
trainees an opportunity to focus research training on translational cardiovascular science,
and share in a variety of activities with colleagues which foster an awareness of cardiovascular
research training opportunities and challenges.
Genetics Graduate Program
In addition to the Laboratory of Genetics, genetics research on campus is also being pursued in other departments.
The Genetics Ph.D. Training Program, administered by the Laboratory of Genetics, includes
Genetics Trainers from many of these departments.
Masters in Biotechnology
The Master of Science in Biotechnology at UW-Madison is an ideal solution for working professionals
advancing their careers in the biotechnology field.
Distinctive for a cross-disciplinary curriculum relevant to the commercialization of new technologies,
the program addresses fundamental scientific topics, business strategies, and legal and ethical perspectives.
