Graduate Administration

The Graduate Program for Neuroscience (GPN) is a stand alone PhD program that does not live in any department, school, or campus. It is managed by a team of administrators at multiple levels of BU leadership. Our “One BU” team of upper administrators who facilitate the university wide mission of GPN is displayed above  (upper left: Daniel Kleinman (Associate Provost for Graduate Affairs), Gloria Waters (Vice President and Associate Provost for Research), Jean Morrison (University Provost and Chief Academic Officer of Boston University), Robert Brown (President of Boston University), Ann Cudd (Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences); lower left: Linda Hyman (Associate Provost for the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences), Christopher Moore (Dean of Sargent College), Karen Antman (Provost of the Medical Campus and Dean of BU School of Medicine), Kenneth Lutchin (Dean, College of Engineering). GPN is directed by Shelley J. Russek (Professor of Pharmacology & Biology) with help from the GPN Assistant Director, Sandi Grasso. The program maintains offices on both campuses and meetings with the Director and our GPN Advisory Committees takes place at both sites. For more about our unique training program see Academics.
