This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. We may add courses that expose our students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning. We may also add content to the general education program that focuses on racial literacy and a racial literacy graduation requirement, and may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

The Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology offers neuroscience education for Ph.D. students and exciting research opportunities for postdoctoral scientists that span cellular to systems neuroscience. The department houses a large number of the university’s neuroscientists and maintains dynamic research groups in glial cell biology, plasticity, development and circuitry, and central nervous system injury and repair.
