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.
The Brain Health Consortium 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
The Brain Health Consortium provides technical support and hands-on training with its Stem Cell Core Facility for cell derivation and various other Cores for transdisciplinary 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.
