Lehigh University Biological Sciences

Bethlehem, PA
Program Description

Graduate research in neuroscience at Lehigh includes study at subcellular, synaptic, and systems neurobiology and endocrinology to behavioral levels. The mission of the program is to create scientists who are broadly trained across the disciplines of neuroscience, from genes to cells to circuits to systems and behavior. Students admitted to the program should have a basic knowledge of biology, anatomy, physiology and/or systems neuroscience. Students begin by taking core courses that provide a broad foundation at the graduate level and will work toward a Ph.D. with a concentration in neuroscience. Students will develop an appreciation that all aspects of neurobiology, whether cellular, physiological, anatomical, behavior, environmental, or social, are inextricably linked and cannot be fully understood as separate, parallel systems of knowledge.
