INP faculty come from a diverse and broad ranging background, allowing students a wide array of choices for research areas, animal and human models, and techniques. Indeed, many of the UCI neuroscience faculty rank among the leaders of their particular subfield.
Students and faculty work closely in the laboratory and in the classroom. In addition, each student has a faculty advisory committee that assists trainees in tailoring an appropriate course of study based on academic background, interests and research foci.
Moreover, students and faculty have ample opportunity to interact informally at the many seminars, presentations, and social gatherings that are a routine part of UCI neuroscience.
