The Brain Health Consortium leverages its collective expertise to collaborate on large-scale research projects that will produce a greater understanding of the brain’s complexity and the factors that cause its decline. We provide technical support and hands-on training with its Stem Cell Core Facility for cell derivation and various other Cores for transdisciplinary research. Members receive seed funds and preferential access to its core facilities. Our scientists provide education regarding stem cells and regenerative medicine and promote outreach and public education regarding the potential of stem cells for biomedical research. The Consortium proudly partners with the Vice President for Research, Economic Development and Knowledge Enterprise to sponsor:
- Seminar series from leaders in the field
- Brown bag lunches to catalyze interactions
- An annual retreat/symposium for BHC members
- Investigator workshops for members to discuss team grants
- BHC Newsletter
