Welcome to the Vollum Institute/OHSU Neuroscience Graduate Program
Founded in 1992, the Neuroscience Graduate Program at OHSU has 65 predoctoral students and more than 140 faculty in a broad range of subdisciplines. The program is intended for students planning a career in academic or industry research, but we encourage student to explore the career path that matches their ambitions and expertise. The program is particularly strong in cellular neuroscience, neuronal signaling, gene regulation, biophysics of channels and transporters, sensory systems, and neuroendocrinology with increasing strength in developmental neuroscience and disease-oriented neuroscience research. Faculty members are located within research institutes at OHSU including the Vollum Institute, the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC), Oregon Hearing Research Center, Jungers Center and the Center for Research on Occupational and Environmental Toxicology (CROET); as well as the basic and clinical departments in the OHSU School of Medicine.
