A core principle of the BRAIN Initiative is to develop and share novel technologies, tools, methods, and resources to advance understanding of healthy and disease brain states. This minisymposium features BRAIN-funded investigators who are driving forward toward this goal; it will inform and educate the community about opportunities and applications of their advances and encourage broader understanding of the methodological and technological advances developed as a part of the BRAIN Initiative.

This session, which is part of the annual Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting, will be chaired by Walter J. Koroshetz, MD (Director, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke), and speakers will include: Drs. Jeff Lichtman (Harvard University), Alison Barth (Carnegie Mellon University), Loren Frank (University of California, San Francisco), Kristen Harris (University of Texas at Austin), Kathleen Gates (University of North Carolina Chapel Hill), and James Trimmer (University of California, Davis).

Several of these BRAIN-funded investigators will be part of the BRAIN Initiative Alliance Social Event during SfN. We hope to see you in Chicago at the mini-symposium and the social!
