Alumni Directory

Building a solid alumni network to foster cross-communications, and connections to our program and current students, is important to us. We maintain these relationships through events, communications and opportunities for alumni to return to NGP and speak to our students about career paths, personal experience, research, and mentoring. The Neuroscience Alumni Network serves one important tool we use to maintain these important and valued relationships.
