The 8th Annual BRAIN Initiative Meting kicks off today, Tuesday, June 21, 2022. Dr. Walter Koroshetz, Director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), shares what’s to come in his newest Director’s Message.  

From June 21-22, 2022, NIH will host the 8th Annual Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative Meeting: Open Science, New Tools with an exciting all-virtual format. While we’d hoped to run a hybrid event this year, the decision to shift to the all-virtual format was made in consideration of recent increase in COVID-19 case levels. This will enable us to make the meeting accessible to as many people as possible and disseminate the progress of the NIH BRAIN Initiative to the global neuroscience community. 

The 2022 meeting follows last year’s successful all-virtual meeting, which included over 3,500 registered attendees. The web-based platform will leverage technologic innovations to stimulate conversations, generate buzz around new scientific results, and forge relationships for new collaborations. As in previous years, the 2022 meeting is open to the public and free to attend, so please register here, and join over 2,300 participants (and counting!) who have already signed up. 

This year’s meeting program includes:
