About the MCIN Program

This interdisciplinary graduate research and education program, established in 1986, has 38 faculty participants. The international reputation of the faculty members and their ability to attract strong extramural support has resulted in the program being designated as one of Colorado State University’s Centers of Research and Scholarly Excellence.

Faculty research interests are focused in cellular, molecular and integrative neurobiology, with emphasis in areas related to neuronal differentiation, degeneration and regeneration, ion channels and membrane physiology, synaptic mechanisms, neuronal circuitry and chronobiology, sensory biology, artificial neural networks, cognitive neuroscience and neurovirology.

Students interested in the cellular and molecular aspects of nervous system function and systems neuroscience are encouraged to apply.


Deadline to apply for the MCIN Graduate Program for admission in Fall 2022: December 10th, 2021.

Applications must be submitted via the CSU Graduate School at this link. More information regarding the program can be found on the MCIN Graduate Page.
