BRAINS, Broadening the Representation of Academic Investigators in NeuroSciences, is an NIH NINDS-funded national program to accelerate and improve the career advancement of neuroscience postdoctoral researchers and assistant professors from underrepresented groups, specifically racial/ethnic minorities and persons with disabilities. The BRAINS program goal is to increase engagement and retention of early-career neuroscientists from underrepresented groups through cohort-based community development and access to tips, tools, and skills development to prepare for tenure track success. Past BRAINS participants report significantly increased feelings of career preparedness, confidence in shaping their careers, sense of community and belonging, and career self-efficacy. Learn more about the program at www.brains.uw.edu<http://www.brains.uw.edu> or through our work in Neuron<http://depts.washington.edu/brains/docs/BRAINS-neuroview2017-final.pdf>, CBE Life Sciences Education<http://www.lifescied.org/content/15/3/ar49.full>, and  BioMed Central<http://blogs.biomedcentral.com/bmcblog/2017/05/18/peer-mentoring-circles-a-strategy-for-thriving-in-science/>.
