About Our Auction
Proceeds from the auction support Mind Science's mission to fund leading-edge research and educational programs focused on the mind and brain, all with the goal of enriching human lives. Our signature BrainStorm Neuroscience Pitch Competition provides critical seed funding for early career researchers; and in 2020-2021 we launch BrainStorm “Junior” for local high school students, specially designed to inspire underserved student populations aspiring to research careers, and to encourage a lifelong love of science and learning. Our vision for BrainStorm “Junior” is to create a model that can be replicated City-wide and beyond.
