In the year 2000, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S., and the National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS), Okazaki National Research Institutes, Japan, launched a Brain Research Cooperative Program (BRCP) program under an umbrella agreement of “Cooperation in Research and Development in Science and Technology” between the governments of the U.S. and Japan.  The purpose of the BRCP is to promote scientist exchange, training, and collaborations in basic, translational and clinical research between neuroscientists from the U.S. and Japan.

Purpose of the Social Event: The goal of the 2023 BRCP Networking Session is to highlight the research that is supported within the program and encourage new collaborations by providing a platform for prior supplement awardees and their trainees to present the results of their collaboration and training to potential applicants from the U.S. and Japan, and the broader neuroscience community.
