The BSi hosts and supports a range of education and training programs that bring together graduate students and medical students interested in brain science through a series of interdisciplinary lectures and workshops.
BSi's ongoing Brain Nights,
informal lectures by Hopkins faculty members, offer the Hopkins community an opportunity to learn about the latest institutional research and interact with people from all areas of the Institution. Video lectures are hosted on this site.
Other past events have included a National Science School for Judges, sponsored by the judges' association ASTAR. This program brought 200 trial judges from around the country together to learn the basics of neuroscience, neurological injuries, and issues of substance abuse and psychiatry. A range of mini symposia and a seminar series included the Technology Development and Commercialization Series in collaboration with JH Technology Transfer, Regeneration and Repair in the Nervous System, Neuro-Education Initiative Learning Lunches and others. Other events included the JH Entrepreneurial “Speed Dating”, the Neuro-Education Initiative Learning, Arts and the Brain Summit: Bringing Researchers and Practitioners Together to Shape the Future, and,
in collaboration with the Walters Art Museum, the BSi supported a convening on Neuroesthetics in 2008. This event laid the groundwork for The Science of The Arts
to be held October 20-21, 2010.
Through awards to investigators BSi supports additional University-wide educational opportunities in the following areas:
