N&PP Alumna Lindsay Pascal Brain Slices

The Neuroscience and Public Policy Program (N&PP) is based on two strongly held beliefs. First, that sound science and technology policy and law are essential for the well-being of societies. Second, that a step toward ensuring such policy is to train future scientists in the making of public policy or the law and prepare them to participate in bringing science and society closer together.

To reach this end, the N&PP offers three integrated degree tracks. All tracks pursue the Neuroscience Ph.D. and either the Master of Public Affairs, Master of International Public Affairs or J.D. in Law.
