The Neuroscience Graduate Program teaches graduate students the molecular, cellular and network underpinnings of behaviour, cognition, perception, movement, and neuroendocrine function.
Students will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of new strategies for the treatment of diseases or establish novel understanding of brain processes.
The program trains highly qualified individuals, it fosters creativity, communication skills, scientific rigor, critical thinking as well as getting to know inside out the modern techniques used in by research labs.
- Offers an internationally recognized course on computational neuroscience, and aligned with the programs in molecular genetics, neurolipidomics, and quantitative biomedicine.
- Linked to the Canadian Stroke Network, the Stem cell Network, the Parkinson Research Consortium, the Brain and Mind Institute, and the Institute of Mental Health Research.
- Human and Molecular Genetic
- Pathology and Experimental Medicine
Facilities, Research Centres and Institutes
The neuroscience programs are part of the University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI).
The uOBMRI is Ottawa’s largest collection of basic researchers and clinician scientists that are focused on brain and mind related health. The uOBMRI helps orchestrate research in a collaborative and innovative fashion by overcoming the barriers that exist between research at the basic and clinical levels. It does so by helping to coordinate research efforts of its research members at the various uOttawa faculties, resident hospitals, affiliated networks and local research institutes such as the:
- Centre for Neural Dynamics (CND)
- Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI)
- University of Ottawa Heart Institutes at the Ottawa Hospital (Civic Campus)
- Institute of Mental Health Research (IMHR) at the Royal Ottawa Hospital
- Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute (CHEORI)
- Elizabeth Bruyere Hospital
- National Research Council
