Office in Physiology Building, Room 109
Carol A. Seger, Director

The Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences (MCIN) program is a 1 year graduate Ph.D. student admission and rotation program. During their year in the program, students take a set of core courses and complete three laboratory rotations. At the end of the program they select a faculty mentor and transfer into a participating degree granting department to complete their Ph.D.requirements. The degree-granting departments are Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Biology; Biomedical Sciences; Chemical and Biological Engineering; Computer Science; Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences; Health and Exercise Science; Human Development and Family Studies; Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology; Occupational Therapy; and Psychology. The program has been named as one of CSU's Programs of Research and Scholarly Excellence.

More information about the program and the MCIN faculty rotation may be found on the Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences (MCIN) webpage.
