Global Advocacy Committee

The mission of the IBRO Global Advocacy Initiative is to build support among key policymakers and other opinion leaders for increased resources for research and public education concerning the brain and the nervous system, in both health and disease and from early development to aging. With effective advocacy, greater political will and enhanced global cooperation, neuroscience will make faster progress for the benefit of all humans.
