About Brains

An introduction to the BRAINS program

Broadening the Representation of Academic Investigators in NeuroScience (BRAINS), a program based at the University of Washington, is designed to accelerate and improve the career advancement of neuroscience postdoctoral scholars and assistant professors from underrepresented groups.

Participants will gain a stronger sense of career self-efficacy through a combination of symposia, peer networks, mentoring relationships, and career consultations over a two-year period. The long-term goal of BRAINS is to increase diversity in academic and scientific leadership in neuroscience-related fields.
