Cell Biology & Neuroscience Option

   
CBN graduate Philip Gardner

The Cell Biology and Neuroscience Option is designed for students planning to attend graduate school or who are preparing for careers in biomedical or neuroscience research. It offers additional preparation in mathematics, physical chemistry and neuroscience. This option can also be used to prepare for professional programs, or for teaching careers, although students preparing for professional (e.g. medical) school admission should note that this curriculum offers only one semester of organic chemistry (most medical schools require a full year of organic chemistry).
