Year Awarded
Dana NextGen

A Foundation planning grant for a potential Dana Center for Neuroscience & Society was awarded to Wake Forest University. The mission of the proposed Center was to bridge and catalyze ongoing conversations between the university and the public about the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of the eight pathways to brain health. The project was organized around (1) enhancing public understanding of behaviors related to brain health, (2) creating a sustainable research feedback model for researchers and communities, and (3) educating future professionals in policy, law teaching, medicine and scientific research.
