Integrated Program in Neuroscience

World-class educator in neuroscience

Welcome to McGill University's Integrated Program in Neuroscience (IPN)Comprising more than 400 graduate students and 200 professors, McGill's IPN is the largest graduate neuroscience program in North America. 

We take pride in the fact that IPN is an inter-disciplinary and inter-departmental graduate program; our students and faculty researchers execute cutting-edge research in diverse fields of neuroscience, ranging from cellular and molecular, to behavioural and cognitive. By allowing our students to conduct research in multiple branches of neuroscience and to enrol in elective courses across disciplines, we ensure that IPN trainees are well-rounded both in the classroom and in the laboratory. 

Apart from its high academic and research standards, IPN values its students' graduate life experience. We offer funding opportunities, enrich our students' academic profiles by hosting our annual scientific retreat and organizing regular cross-disciplinary seminars with keynote speakers, and encourage student involvement via our student association (Graduate Students' Association for Neuroscience) and our award-winning student outreach group (BrainReach). 

Welcome to our new series of introductory profiles showcasing IPN students and faculty researchers;
This month, get to know Anastasia Sares, IPN Ph.D. student!

Congratulations to BrainReach for being one of two recipients of the 2018 Principal's Prize for Public Engagement Through Media: Special Recognition Certificate!
