Faculty

Dozens of faculty are engaged in neuroscience research in numerous schools across the NTU campus; the list below includes more than 80 faculty who are at NTU and are eager to serve as mentors for Neuroscience Ph.D. Programme students. These faculty provide a very broad and strong pool of teachers for Neuroscience modules as well as being prospective research mentors for Neuroscience Ph.D. Programme students.

These Neuroscience faculty are organized here according to their research interests:
