What sets us


The primary goal of the Neuroscience Program at Utah is to develop well-rounded scientists who are passionate about science and will become the next generation of leaders in our society. 

The Neuroscience PhD Program at the University of Utah offers rigorous training through a combination of coursework, research training, mentoring, and professional development. More than 80 program faculty from 26 participating departments provide broad expertise from molecular and cellular neuroscience, to systems and cognitive neuroscience. 

Students receive hands-on training and mentorship within a world-class research environment, collegial and collaborative mentorship and a vibrant research community. They have the unique opportunity to develop professionally through a variety of student leadership roles, such as organizing the Annual Snowbird Neuroscience Symposium and Neuroscience Program Speaker Series.
