The interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Neurobiology and Behavior is a university-wide training program, with faculty members from 12 departments on both campuses.  Students whose primary interest is broad training in neuroscience may apply directly to this program.


In addition, individual faculty members in the Neurobiology and Behavior Program also participate in a variety of other programs on both campuses that provide alternative routes to training in various aspects of neuroscience:

At the Health Sciences Campus, the Coordinated Doctoral program in Biomedical Sciences at Columbia University Medical Center includes Neurobiology and Behavior, as well as three other programs that each covers a broad theme:

Cellular, Molecular, Structural and Genetic Studies
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics
  • Cell Biology
  • Genetics and Development
  • Microbiology, Immunology and Infection

Mechanisms of Health and Disease
  • Cellular Physiology and Biophysics
  • Nutritional and Metabolic Biology
  • Pathobiolgy and Molecular Medicine
  • Pharmacology and Molecular Signaling

Biomedical Informatics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Clinical Informatics
  • Public Health Informatics
  • Translational Informatics

At the Morningside Campus, there are several additional Ph.D. programs to which some of the neurobiology and behavior faculty belong, including:

Biological Sciences
Biomedical Engineering
Statistics
Psychology
