Neuroscience at Harvard

Harvard’s vibrant neuroscience community consists of hundreds of basic, clinical and translational labs located across multiple sites in Cambridge and Boston. The Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School (Boston) and the Center for Brain Science (CBS) at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard (Cambridge) are two major sites of basic research at the University.  

Harvard Medical School affiliates with basic, translational and clinical neuroscience labs include Boston Children’s Hospital (with the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Research Center), McLean Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Mass. General Hospital, Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Harvard brain scientists are also situated at the Kempner Institute for the Study of Natural and Artificial Intelligence and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT.

The Harvard PhD Program in Neuroscience (PiN) includes labs across all of the above sites.
