DIBS serves as a vital hub for researchers representing multiple disciplines related to neuroscience. We use a multi-pronged approach to catalyze innovative interdisciplinary neuroscience research, including:

  • Two types of competitive seed funding programs for novel research grants
  • Research centers and working groups
  • Special events, lectures and symposia
  • Administrative and planning support for research grants
  • Collaboration with Duke leadership in developing and maintaining the state-of-the-science resources for advancing brain sciences at Duke. One key area of collaboration is neuroimaging, a vital component of a variety of research studies at DIBS, overseen by Andrew M. Michael, PhD, Director of Imaging Analytics & Informatics for CCN and DIBS.  
The brain is a world consisting of a number of unexplored continents and great stretches of unknown territory.
