What We Do
The Dana Alliance’s mission is to advance public awareness of neuroscience research and its progress towards mapping the brain and curing its diseases and disorders. Part of this mission is disseminating information about the brain in an understandable way. Through a breadth of accessible programs, publications, and special events, the Alliance promotes a greater understanding of brain science.
We develop engaging, diverse programs with high visibility to reach broad segments of the population or well-defined target audiences.
We create and organize special events on topics that advance our mission, including Brain Awareness Week.
We work to advance education by training instructors in brain topics, disseminating materials for neuroscience curricula, and helping fund museum exhibits, movies, and documentaries about the brain.
We conceptualize, develop, and disseminate informative publications about the brain and brain research.
We act as a resource for and gateway to current, accurate information about the brain and brain science for the public, media, educators, seniors, children, and other specialized groups.
