Major Brain Research Meeting Taking Place Sept. 19

"Brain diseases and disorders affect millions of families worldwide, leading to billions of dollars in medical expenses and lost productivity," said NSF Director France Córdova, who will deliver opening remarks at the event. "This event is intended to promote collaboration and cooperation in emerging, large-scale international brain projects to further advance neuroscience research."

A meeting taking place Sept. 19 in New York City will bring together members of the U.S. BRAIN Initiative, a public-private collaborative effort aimed at accelerating new technologies to revolutionize scientists' understanding of the brain, with the goal of exchanging ideas and information about their efforts and identifying new opportunities for collaboration. The National Science Foundation and The Kavli Foundation are supporting the event, which is hosted by Rockefeller University in cooperation with Columbia University.

"Brain diseases and disorders affect millions of families worldwide, leading to billions of dollars in medical expenses and lost productivity," said NSF Director France Córdova, who will deliver opening remarks at the event. "This event is intended to promote collaboration and cooperation in emerging, large-scale international brain projects to further advance neuroscience research. NSF plays a pivotal role in funding brain research, bringing the research community together and shaping the vision for a global brain initiative."

The U.S. State Department, the Global Partnerships Forum, The Kavli Foundation, and NSF will also host a complementary event at U.N. headquarters in New York City the same evening.
