The Brain Health Consortium (BHC) encourages diverse experts to come together to conduct basic research in brain patterning and function, and to translate understanding of stem cell technology for biomedical research.
BHC partners with the Department of Biology to sponsor:
- Weekly seminar series from leaders in the field
- A bi-weekly Work-In-Progress (WIP) talk from BHC trainees
- An annual symposium for BHC members
- Investigator workshops for BHC members to discuss team grants
- Specialty events, including Brain Health Roundup, a Happy Hour to promote scientific exchanges and foster collaborative interactions among faculty and trainees in an informal setting
BHC provides technical support and hands-on training with its Stem Cell Core Facility for cell derivation and various other Cores for multidisciplinary research. BHC supports its members with seed funds and preferential access to its core facilities. BHC also supports teaching about stem cells and regenerative medicine and promotes outreach and public education regarding the potential of stem cells for biomedical research.
