Courses are arranged in chronological order. Those designated Introductory are intended for undergraduates and others seeking information at a basic level; Intermediate / Advanced are intended for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, academic faculty and staff, and scientists and technicians working in the private sector; they are offered in partnership with the Neuroscience Training Program and McArdle Laboratory (Department of Oncology) at UW-Madison.
