BRAINS is an NINDS-funded, national program dedicated to advancing

professional development approach to explicitly address the inclusion,
retention, and advancement of early career neuroscientists from
historically underrepresented and marginalized groups. The BRAINS
experience positively impacts participants’ career trajectories, especially
in academic neuroscience, and creates a perpetually empowering community.

BRAINS participants are early career (pre-tenure) Ph.D. scientists in
neuroscience-related fields who are members of underrepresented racial and
ethnic groups or are individuals with disabilities. 2022 participants will

We look forward to welcoming the next cohort into the BRAINS community.
