The 9th Annual BRAIN Initiative Meeting will take place on June 12-13, 2023. Dr. Walter Koroshetz, Director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, shares what’s to come in his newest Director’s Message. 

From June 12-13, 2023, NIH will host the 9th Annual Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative Meeting. NINDS is one of the 10 participating NIH Institutes and Centers supporting The BRAIN Initiative®, an ambitious national science project to map, monitor and modulate brain circuits. The meeting will take place virtually and in person in Bethesda, Maryland, at which the latest advances will be discussed, as well as their medical, social, and ethical implications. We’re excited to welcome attendees back in person for the first time since 2019, both to foster opportunities for the cross-cutting, collaborative nature of BRAIN-supported research, and to support the importance of this meeting in cultivating synergy across disciplines and teams. 

The 2023 hybrid meeting follows last year’s successful all-virtual meeting, which included over 2600 registered attendees. We are grateful for the gradual return of in-person meetings, which will include satellite events and organic networking. These gatherings provide invaluable opportunities for connecting and collaborating across the neuroscience and BRAIN communities, while also enabling virtual capabilities based on our lessons learned over the last three years. 

This year’s meeting program includes: 

  • Three plenary talks 

  • Three dedicated poster sessions 

  • A wide selection of in-person and virtual exhibit booths 

  • Six attendee-organized symposia 

  • Six focused specialty sessions organized by federal and non-federal organizations, including BRAIN Initiative Alliance partners 

  • Thirty Trainee Highlight Awards 

  • Several networking events
