The Applied Mathematics Graduate Program provides training and research activities in a broad spectrum of applied mathematics. The effort in virtually all the research areas ranges from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. Many of our faculty are engaged in interdisciplinary research collaborations with colleagues at Brown or elsewhere. This breadth is one of the great strengths of the program and is further reflected in the courses we offer.
Brown University provides a unique environment in which to pursue interdisciplinary brain science graduate training. Research at Brown emphasizes collaborative theoretical and experimental studies of the brain, from the molecular to the behavioral and cognitive levels. It unites researchers who study the fundamental mechanisms of nervous system function and those who seek to create devices with brain-like functions that can assist people. The faculty is also committed to translating fundamental knowledge into practical applications to the diagnosis and treatment of the devastating effects of disease and trauma of the nervous system. Brown is a leader in brain-related research and offers exceptional training and course work for those interested in pursuing careers in brain science.
The Robert J. & Nancy D. Carney Institute for Brain Science partners with eight discipline-based graduate programs. Students interested in interdisciplinary brain science training enter through one of these graduate programs.
