The Harvard PhD Program in Neuroscience (known as PiN) spans the
neuroscience community throughout Harvard University. The Program
provides mentoring and advising to a close and supportive community of
students who carry out PhD thesis research in laboratories in the
Harvard Medical School Neurobiology department, in Harvard affiliated
Hospitals, or in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Program students
come from diverse scientific, personal and cultural backgrounds. More
than 100 faculty members provide exciting and rigorous research
training in all areas of neuroscience, and our 100+ students take full
advantage of these opportunities.
We are dedicated to educating students so they develop as neuroscientists who will change science in the 21st Century
and beyond. PiN provides training for neuroscience careers including
academic research, science policy, biotech, pharmaceuticals,
consulting, K-12 education, community education, science writing and
outreach, “big data,” science policy and other developing fields.
Attending graduate school at the Harvard Program in Neuroscience is a
wonderful and inspiring experience.
