Giving early-career neuroscientists a voice

At the Brainbox Initiative, we work closely with some of the world’s leading neuroscience researchers to provide an ongoing, dynamic programme of events, awards, and hands-on training opportunities that have been specifically created to support and promote the work of early and mid-career neuroscientists.

Since our establishment in 2016, our range of hands-on workshops; the annual Brainbox Initiative Conference; our interactive webinar series; and our range of prizes and awards have allowed us to work alongside thousands of neuroscientists from universities and colleges around the world, and have already helped to inspire and proudly support some truly groundbreaking non-invasive brain stimulation studies by the most promising early and mid-career researchers.
