The mission of the Winter Conference on Brain Research (WCBR) is to provide a forum for the dissemination of all aspects of neuroscience at an annual meeting that offers cutting-edge science in formal sessions within a relaxed networking environment amenable to all. To achieve this mission, the WCBR focuses on the following three sub goals:

To exchange neuroscience research between a broad and diverse audience of neuroscientists through panels, short courses, and posters on basic, clinical, and translational findings at all levels from molecular to behavioral.

To increase diversity in neuroscience including, but not limited to, the provision of financial support for junior investigators.

To provide education in neuroscience to physicians and other healthcare professionals through continuing medical education, and to lay audiences through outreach activities.


If you have any questions, please email WCBR’s Executive Office at or contact by telephone, 615-324-2365.
