DIBS supports research communities united by a common interest in an area of brain science that is especially suited to advancement by interdisciplinary study, and co-convened by faculty from a wide variety of departments. We sponsor five Centers, as well as four Research Groups, which are composed of faculty, postdocs, students, and staff. Each has developed a vibrant program that promotes research, education, and outreach addressing both fundamental and translational issues. Groups and Centers receive funding from DIBS to develop programs such as journal clubs, guest speaker series, workshops, and larger-scale meetings
