Kavli Foundation

The Kavli Foundation is continuing its support for the goals of the BRAIN Initiative and for innovative brain research.

Consistent with its commitment in 2013, Kavli and its University Partners have commited $100 Million to brain research by forming three new Kavli Institutes in addition to supporting its existing four institutes.

The Kavli Foundation, based in Oxnard, California, is dedicated to the goals of advancing science for the benefit of humanity and promoting increased public understanding and support for scientists and their work.

John Hopkins Neuroscience

John Hopkins has two primary centers for neuroscience research:

The Solomon Snyder Department of Neuroscience in the School of Medicine and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in the School of Arts & Sciences.

Current research ranges from investigating the development of the nervous system, synaptic plasticity and the molecular and cellular mechanisms of learning and memory to the neural basis of higher brain function such as perception and decision-making.

The mission of the new Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute (Kavli NDI) at JHU is to bring together neuroscientists, engineers and data scientists to investigate neural development, neuronal plasticity, perception and cognition.

“The challenges of tomorrow will not be confined to distinct disciplines, and neither will be the solutions we create,” said Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels. “The Kavli Foundation award is a tremendous honor, because it allows Johns Hopkins to build on our history of pioneering neuroscience and catalyze new partnerships with engineers and data scienctists that will be essential to building a unified understanding of brain function.”
