About the Research Excellence Cluster

The Dynamic Brain Circuits and Connections in Health and Disease research cluster brings together diverse scientists and accelerates their insights into brain circuit function by creating a stronger, more equitable and inclusive research environment: access for all to infrastructure, technology and training that embraces modern data-driven methodologies.

UBC Research Excellence Clusters bring together faculty across departments to collaborate on and catalyze advancements in a particular area of research. Our team of brain researchers represent some of the best in their fields and are a significant collaborative force. The cluster provides essential standards and training necessary to develop next generation treatments for brain disorders.

The cluster is supported by the Office of Vice-President, Academic and Provost and the Vice-President, Research + Innovation, with financial contributions from the UBC Excellence Fund.
