Welcome to the Rice University/Baylor College of Medicine Neuroengineering IGERT!

The goal of this program is to provide students with the educational and research training needed to develop new tools to understand, interface with, model, and manipulate the nervous system. Students in our program will obtain an interdisciplinary understanding of the nervous system from the level of molecular and cellular processes to the level of information processing within neural circuits composed of millions of cells. The long term goal of this research is to develop innovative approaches to the complex challenges of restoring function to individuals suffering from disorders of the nervous system.
