Please read with serious consideration the following excerpt from Neuron as submitted by
Department of Neurobiology and Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience.
"Successful graduate training benefits from committed mentors and motivated students. Because scientific research involves investigating unexplored territory, however, each students experience will necessarily be unique, making it rarely possible to conform to an idealized training sequence. To approach this inherently uncontrolled situation constructively,students are encouraged, first, to become aware of their own learning patterns and to apply this knowledge to selecting a thesis laboratory, and second, to cultivate an educational philosophy that helps them adapt to many circumstances."
Phillip Pekala, PhD “In recent years we have seen exciting changes in our understanding of teaching methods that both stimulate and motivate the researcher. Our PhD program is designed to support our students as they progress toward a career in science.”
