PiN students are actively encouraged to seek collaboration across labs and institutions. The entities below assist students in building successful collaborations across labs both at Harvard and at other institutions.
Harvard Brain Science Initiative HBI was formed in 2015 to coordinate the large number of neuroscience labs and resources at Harvard. Directed by Michael E. Greenberg (Chair of the Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School) and Joshua Sanes (Director of the Center for Brain Science at Harvard University), HBI offers seed grants, puts on seminars and public events, and promotes collaboration among neuroscience labs across Harvard.
Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center The NeuroDiscovery Center promotes collaboration specifically among labs and facilities seeking to cure neurologic and psychiatric diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, MS, ALS, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Core Facilities at Harvard Medical School Core scientific facilities support research and collaboration by providing access to services, equipment, and staff that would be too expensive or difficult for a single lab to provide.
Center for Brain Science The Center for Brain Science, based on the Harvard undergraduate campus in Cambridge, unites researchers pursuing the discovery of the function and structure of neural circuits. Members of CBS come from the Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard, the School of Engineering at Harvard, and most of the local hospitals.
