Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (INS)

The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (INS) graduate program welcomes highly motivated and energetic Ph.D. students dedicated to the integrated study of neuroscience. This revolutionary approach to neuroscience incorporates chemistry, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, imaging, and computer science to discover the causes and explore efficacious treatments of neurological and psychiatric disorders. To this end, the Neuroscience Program of Academia Sinica (NPAS) teamed with the School of Life Sciences at National Yang-Ming University (NYMU) in 2013, the Institute of Clinical Medicine of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in 2014, the Department of Life Science at National Taiwan University in 2017, and Institute of Cognivite Neuroscience at National Central University in 2019 to develop an INS Ph.D. level program. This program trains students in how to approach neuroscience research using a multidisciplinary approach. This program stresses the importance of collaboration and interactivity among colleagues to produce better outcomes in neuroscience research. INS has expanded its repertoire to include research into cell and molecular neurobiology, clinical medicine, systems neuroscience, neural imaging and engineering, and cognitive and computational neuroscience. A diverse yet advanced curriculum is offered from these five campuses to enrich the learning process. Students are encouraged to initiate and participate in collaborative research projects among labs of different disciplines. In combination with seminars, symposia, and retreats, INS provides an active and flexible learning environment to help students reach their highest potential.
