The Neuroscience Training Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was established in 1971. Currently, it comprises over 100 faculty members whose research interests range from molecular neurobiology to integrative systems and computational modeling. The program is designed to prepare students for careers in research and teaching. Training leads to the Ph.D. degree in neuroscience or the M.D./Ph.D. degree in cooperation with the School of Medicine and Public Health.
NTP Student Zarmeen Zahid was one of eight recipients of the 2021 Source Foundation Grant. Read more here!

With over 90 trainers and 25 affiliates, NTP faculty and students study in many broad research areas, with the five listed on our site meant to serve as a guide to prospective students as they begin to consider their graduate school career.
