Neurobiological and Behavioral Development Training Program

The NBD Training Program is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development. The purpose of the program is to provide postdoctoral training for highly qualified individuals holding an MD and/or Ph.D. degree and with a commitment to investigate nervous system development through the use of integrated conceptual and methodological approaches. To foster interactions between neurobiological and behavioral sub-disciplines, we have formed a core of faculty preceptors whose research programs are characterized by an interdisciplinary approach to problems in neurobiology and/or behavior. This group exists within a diverse Neuroscience environment that includes clinical, basic science and Arts and Sciences components. Postdoctoral trainees can select a preceptor or co-preceptors to direct a program of research. In addition to laboratory research endeavors, trainees participate in a regular NBD seminar series and many enroll in formal courses as appropriate,
