About The Program

JLG Building (c) Frank Oudeman


In the mid-1970s, under the leadership of Eric Kandel, Columbia became one of the first universities to develop an integrated approach to research and graduate education in neuroscience. From these early stages, our graduate program emphasized collaborative teaching and research, and this spirit is the foundation of the current Doctoral Program in Neurobiology and Behavior. Today, the program has over 100 faculty members and over 80 graduate students, and spans three research campuses (Morningside Heights, Manhattanville, and Columbia University Medical Center). The program is co-directed by Ai Yamamoto, Darcy Kelley, Ken Miller, and Wes Grueber; to learn more follow links below.
