NINDS to host Fundamental Neuroscience Working Group Public Webinar

NINDS and the Fundamental Neuroscience Working Group (FNWG) will host a public webinar on July 27 from 12-1 pm ET to present draft recommendations and seek public input through a Q&A session.  

The Fundamental Neuroscience Working Group (FNWG) was formed in 2022 as a working group of the National Advisory Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NANDS) Council to provide recommendations to foster research in fundamental neuroscience to support the mission of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), one of the ten Institutes and Centers that make up the NIH BRAIN Initiative.

In collaboration with FNWG, NINDS will host a public webinar on July 27, from 12-1 pm ET, to present draft recommendations and solidify public input through a Q&A session. Public feedback will greatly contribute to the critical NINDS planning effort focused on advancing research in Fundamental Neuroscience, which aligns with the BRAIN Initiative's mission to revolutionize our understanding of the human brain by accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies.

Please register for the webinar and submit feedback or questions regarding the FNWG’s draft recommendations to Questions received by July 22, 2023, might be addressed during the webinar. The FNWG will consider all input submitted by August 1 in its final report to the NINDS Advisory Council in September 2023.  

A document that outlines the FNWG’s draft recommendations will be sent to all registered webinar attendees approximately two weeks before the webinar. The draft recommendations will also be posted on the webinar event page

Activities and resources for Fundamental Neuroscience can be found on the NINDS Fundamental Neuroscience Website. Please contact for any additional questions about the FNWG or this webinar.
