advances in Neuroscience range from the revealing of minute detail
of proteins which shape synaptic messages to the window on the
mind which has been allowed by the development of brain imaging.
The next decade promises an even more rapid addition to our knowledge
best prepare for the future of academic neuroscience, the Department
of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois, Chicago, College
of Medicine has formed a program leading to the PhD or MD/PhD
degree. Neuroscientists from within Psychiatry as well as others
on the campus have joined together to initiate the program described
here. It is also expected that some talented Psychiatry residents
will gain the opportunity to do research with these faculty.
As a new program,
we intended for our approach to the study of neurobiology to be
flexible and plastic as the nervous system itself. No traditions
are in place which might prevent the creativity of young scholars
from interfering with innovation in their program of study. We
invite you to learn more about this unique and exciting opportunity
for advanced studies.
