Neuroscience is primarily housed in the Olin-Rice Science Center. The building contains over $2 million in state- of-the-art scientific equipment.
The college is close to the University of Minnesota, which provides students with additional opportunities to perform research. The university also houses one of the largest collections of biomedical journals in the United States and has extensive holdings in other areas of neuroscience as well, all of which are available for use by Macalester students.
Numerous internships and seminars are available at the University of Minnesota and the many research facilities in the Twin Cities area.
