Masters Programs Biomedical Informatics The Masters degree is viewed as a pleuripotential experience that offers a flexible program accommodating students entering with a variety of backgrounds and career goals, including an academic career for a doctorally-prepared health professional.
Research Opportunities Research Opportunities The Department of Neuroscience encourages interested undergraduate majors to gain research experience within an active neuroscience laboratory. Most undergraduates who enroll in research for credit are interested in completing an independent project that results in an undergraduate thesis.
Finding a lab Identify the specific areas of neuroscience that are of greatest interest to you. Attend natural sciences club meetings and talk to fellow students and presenters. Talk with your instructors.
For additional information, read our PDF After you identify area s of interest Read the research descriptions of the faculty labs you have identified as most interesting. Are these the kinds of experiments you can imagine yourself doing? Contact the primary investigators and ask if there are openings in their labs.
Explain specifically why you are interested in their research area. Once you find an open lab position Students sometimes perform lab research without course credit.

However, the Department still needs to have a record of your project and your faculty sponsor. Please fill out the Non-Credit Research Form see link at right and have it approved by the Department of Neuroscience. If you would like to receive course credit for your work, you need to obtain the permission of the sponsoring faculty member and register for NROSCI Independent Study or Thesis Research.
Students typically begin by registering for If your early work is successful, and if the faculty sponsor agrees, you can then progress to thesis research. Determine how much time you have during the week to devote to lab work.
This will determine the number of research credits you can register for 4 to 5 hours per week per credit. Complete a New Research Form see link at right with your faculty mentor and have it approved by the Department of Neuroscience. Return the completed, signed form to the advising office A Langley Hall for a permission number to enroll.
Students typically immerse themselves in the research that is ongoing in the laboratory, attend laboratory meetings, meet frequently with the faculty mentor to discuss research and acquire skills necessary for doing original research in the laboratory.
If the student decides to continue research and do a thesis, the student will begin to focus on the hypotheses he wants to investigate and begin designing the requisite experiments.
Students perform the experiments that will form the basis of the thesis; attend lab meetings and have regular meetings with their faculty mentor. This course is typically taken for at least two terms, although the length depends on the specific project. The student is usually enrolled concurrently in NROSCI and has collected the majority of the data needed to write the thesis.
The student will need to complete a Thesis Writing Practicum Agreement to register for this course. The student will also need to select a committee composed of the faculty mentor and at least one other faculty member to act as a thesis reader.
One member of the committee must be a primary faculty member from the Department of Neuroscience.Master and PhD Students view the link below for information on completing your ETD.

About the Program. The School of Pharmacy offers training at the graduate level to unique, highly motivated individuals. Our mission is to train the next generation of leaders and decision makers seeking to improve the health of the community through outstanding basic and clinical research. The University of Pittsburgh Biomedical Sciences Master's Program (BMP) aims to prepare future health sciences professionals and biomedical investigators with the training necessary for successful application to medical, dental, or graduate school. The BMP is a structured 32 credit-hour program designed to be completed in a month period. However, courses taken at the University of Pittsburgh while not enrolled in a graduate program do not count toward M.S. graduation requirements. Thesis Committee The student’s Thesis Committee will consist of at least three persons responsible for scientific guidance and research oversight.
ETDs allow opportunities for new forms of creative scholarship through use of interactive elements, multi-media, hyperlinks, and more. ETD (Electronic Thesis and Dissertation) Students completing a master's thesis or doctoral dissertation must notify Courtney Fleck at [email protected] to obtain an ETD packet of information before completing an ETD.
Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) are theses or dissertations prepared as text-based PDF files. ETDs can contain non-text elements such as multimedia, sound, video, and hypertext links.
At Pitt, ETDs are available on PITTCat, the University's online catalog. Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) are required for all doctoral, masters, and baccalaureate degree programs with a thesis requirement at the University of Pittsburgh.
