Mission Statement

The missions of the Florida Atlantic Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute are to stimulate advanced neuroscience research, to promote superior neuroscience education, to facilitate the translation of research discoveries for the benefit of society, and to enhance the public understanding of the many dimensions of brain research and its benefits.

To accomplish this mission, we will develop an advanced and accessible technological capacity for neuroscience research, will recruit neuroscience researcher-educators whose programs can play a leading role in the field, will develop comprehensive and engaging neuroscience education programs, will stimulate transfer of neuroscience research into resources of broader value, and will work tirelessly to educate the lay community as to the promise and progress of brain research.
