The University of Texas - San Antonio offers graduate students  
interested in computational studies of the nervous system a wide range  
of research options within its rapidly expanding Ph.D. program in  
Neurobiology   (http://bio.utsa.edu/neurobiology/).   The graduate  
program is also supported by the Neuroscience Institute at UTSA (http://neuroscience.utsa.edu 
), and is affiliated with the San Antonio Neuroscience Alliance (http://sana.utsa.edu/ 
) linking together all neuroscience training programs in San Antonio.

Interested students are encouraged listen to our podcast interviews  
with visiting scholars and our own faculty:  http://snrp.utsa.edu/Podcast/Podcast.html

Computationally Oriented Faculty include:

Dr. James M. Bower – Studies of cerebellum as well as the olfactory  
system combining realistic modeling with a wide range of experimental  
techniques.  (Bower-lab.org).  The Bower laboratory is also home to  
the GENESIS Simulation Project (www.genesis-sim.org/GENESIS).

Dr. David Jaffe – Biophysical and modeling studies of the Hippocampus  http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/jaffe.html

Dr. Carlos Paladini – Biophysical and modeling studies of the basal  
ganglia http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/paladini.html

Dr. Kay Robbins (Department of Computer Science)  -- Visualization and  
data analysis techniques for realistic biological models. http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~krobbins/

Dr. David Sensemen – Modeling and voltage sensitive die studies of the  
Turtle visual cortex  http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/senseman.html

Dr. Fidel Santamaria – Modeling, biophysical and imaging studies of  
sub-cellular processes in cerebellar and cerebral cortical neurons. http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/santamaria.html

Dr. Todd Troyer. Behavioral Analysis and Model of Song Learning in  
Birds.  Theoretical neurodynamics. http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/troyer.html

Dr. Yufeng Wang – Bioinformatic and genomic analysis of cellular  
networks. http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/wang.html

Dr. Carola Wenk  (Department of Computer Science)  - Mathematical  
analysis of biological structures. http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~carola/

Dr. Charles Wilson – Modeling, Anatomical, Imaging and Biophysical  
Studies of the basal Ganglia. http://bio.utsa.edu/faculty/wilson.html

Students also have access to state-of-the-art research facilities  
including:  an advanced imaging center,; the computational biology  
initiative (http://cbi.utsa.edu/); and a new state-of-the-art  
proteomics facility.

All students within the program receive support covering stipend,  
tuition and fees, health insurance, as well as travel to scientific  

The University of Texas San Antonio is located on the outskirts of San  
Antonio Texas, and on the edge of the Texas Hill Country with many  
cultural and recreational opportunities.  San Antonio is also one of  
the most affordable and cleanest cities in the United States.  UTSA  
encourages applications from women and minorities underrepresented in  
science and technology.
