The SU Biology department (biology.syr.edu) is a vibrant department with strengths in Developmental Biology, Genetics, Epigenetics, Neuroscience, Ecology and Evolution. Additional Neuroscience faculty are also located in other SU dpts (neuroscience.syr.edu/Faculty.html).
Syracuse is an inexpensive and very pleasant and vibrant city to live in. It offers the amenities of a city without lots of the hastles. It has its own airport (15 minute drive from downtown) and is close to Toronto, New York City, Philadelphia, Montreal as well as the natural beauty of Upstate New York (Niagara Falls, The Finger Lakes, Adirondack lakes and mountains etc).
Syracuse University also shares a campus with SUNY Upstate Medical University that has active research programs in Cell Biology, Developmental Biology and Neuroscience and the Lewis Lab regularly participates in seminar series and other programs with SUNY UMU researchers. http://www.upstate.edu/research/research-departments.php
