For decades, NYU has served as a premier training ground for new generations of neuroscientists. With the addition of many new faculty and modern laboratory space, NYU has broadened its training mission. Neuroscience research at NYU spans molecular, cellular, developmental, systems, cognitive, behavioral, and computational approaches to understanding the brain. The breadth and depth of our neuroscience research arises from two cooperative centers located in lower Manhattan - the Center for Neural Science (CNS) and the Neuroscience Institute (NI). CNS, located at NYU’s Washington Square campus, is home to 28 core neuroscience labs, affiliate labs in biology, psychology, and physics, and is NYU’s portal for undergraduate neuroscience education. The NI is located at NYU’s medical school and houses more than 25 core neuroscience labs as well as affiliates in allied departments. Connected by a free university bus service, CNS and NI serve as the joint pillars of graduate training in neuroscience at NYU. Prospective graduate students apply through a single online portal and applications are jointly reviewed by a single admissions committee that spans CNS and NI.
