The Beren­son-Allen Cen­ter for Non­in­va­sive Brain Stim­u­la­tion (CNBS) at Beth Israel Dea­coness Med­ical Cen­ter and Har­vard Med­ical School inte­grates three dis­tinct mis­sions: Research, Edu­ca­tion, and Patient Care, in order to opti­mize and apply non­in­va­sive brain stim­u­la­tion to health care and research.

The Brain Injury Asso­ci­a­tion of Cana­da has a man­date to improve the qual­i­ty of life for all Cana­di­ans affect­ed by acquired brain injury and pro­mote it’s pre­ven­tion. Addi­tion­al­ly, BIAC is ded­i­cat­ed to facil­i­tate post-trau­ma research, edu­ca­tion and advo­ca­cy in part­ner­ship with nation­al, provincial/territorial and region­al asso­ci­a­tions and oth­er stakeholders.

Brain World Mag­a­zine explores cut­ting-edge sci­ence for the gen­er­al read­er and how emerg­ing find­ings can affect human health, cul­ture, edu­ca­tion, glob­al issues and more. BRAIN WORLD is pub­lished by the Inter­na­tion­al Brain Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion (IBREA), a non­prof­it edu­ca­tion­al organization.

The Cen­ter for Brain Health at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas at Dal­las was cre­at­ed in 1999 to search for ways to pro­mote brain health fit­ness across the entire human lifes­pan, encom­pass­ing every age, eth­nic­i­ty, gen­der, and socioe­co­nom­ic group. Life-improv­ing stud­ies empha­size both inno­v­a­tive brain research and prac­ti­cal clin­i­cal applications.

The Cen­ter for Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy Research in the Inter­est of Soci­ety (CITRIS) cre­ates infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions for many of our most press­ing social, envi­ron­men­tal, and health care prob­lems. CITRIS was cre­at­ed to “short­en the pipeline” between world-class lab­o­ra­to­ry research and the cre­ation of start-ups, larg­er com­pa­nies, and whole industries.

The Cen­ter for Tech­nol­ogy and Aging is a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion with a pur­pose to advance the dif­fu­sion of tech­nolo­gies that help old­er adults lead health­ier lives and main­tain inde­pen­dence. It was found­ed in 2009 with a grant from The SCAN Foun­da­tion and is affil­i­ated with the Pub­lic Health Institute.

The Inter­na­tional Coun­cil on Active Aging® (ICAA) was found­ed in the belief that uni­fy­ing the efforts of the orga­ni­za­tions focused on old­er adults ben­e­fits both the peo­ple they reach and the orga­ni­za­tions them­selves. Today, the vision is shared by over 8,000 orga­ni­za­tions con­nected to the ICAA network.

MaRS Dis­cov­ery Dis­trict is a large scale, mis­sion dri­ven inno­va­tion cen­tre locat­ed in Toron­to and net­worked across Ontario, focused on build­ing Canada’s next gen­er­a­tion of tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies in life sci­ences and health care, dig­i­tal media, clean­tech, as well as inno­v­a­tive social pur­pose business.

Nation­al Health Char­i­ties Cana­da is a col­lec­tive of orga­ni­za­tions in Cana­da that rep­re­sent peo­ple with chron­ic, often pro­gres­sive, neu­ro­log­i­cal and/or neu­ro­mus­cu­lar dis­eases, dis­or­ders, con­di­tions and injuries, and pro­vide lead­er­ship eval­u­at­ing and advanc­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties for col­lab­o­ra­tion relat­ed to brain health.

OLLI @ Berke­ley pro­vides old­er adults an intel­lec­tual, cul­tural and cre­ative con­nec­tion to Berke­ley as well as a place for UC-Berkeley’s dis­tin­guished fac­ulty to share their research and inter­ests in an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary exchange of ideas.

The UCSF Gaz­za­ley Lab is a cog­ni­tive neu­ro­science research lab at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, San Fran­cis­co focused on study­ing the neur­al mech­a­nisms of mem­o­ry and atten­tion, changes due to nor­mal aging and demen­tia, and ther­a­peu­tic interventions.

The UNCG Geron­tol­ogy Research Net­work is a coop­er­a­tive group con­sist­ing of UNCG fac­ul­ty, research staff, and stu­dents, formed in 2007 to facil­i­tate and sup­port trans­dis­ci­pli­nary aging-relat­ed research.
