EMPOWERING COLLABORATIVE AND
DIVERSE NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH,
EDUCATION AND OUTREACH AT UCLA.

Education

The BRI co-ordinates a large portion of neuroscience educational programs on campus.

Research

With about 300 members and about 800 open source labs, abundant opportunities exist to connect with fellow researchers and create innovative projects.

Outreach

The BRI educates and inspires K-12 students that are traditionally underserved to pursue higher education and a career in neuroscience.
