Dear Friends,

As Brain Awareness Week approaches, I'm thrilled to invite you to join us in celebration!

Spearheaded by the Dana Foundation, Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign to foster enthusiasm and support for brain science.

Here at the CNLM, our commitment to engaging youth and community members in neuroscience is year-round. Through opportunities like lab tours, open houses, public lectures, summer camps, and the annual Brain Bee, we continuously strive to ignite and foster curiosity for brain science.

This Brain Awareness Week, we're excited to announce the Brain Awareness Week Postcard Art Competition, inviting artists of all ages to showcase their creativity!

Let your imagination soar and join the excitement! Learn more about the competition and submit your artwork by March 1 here.

We are looking forward to celebrating with you.
