Scholar Programs

Making the O’Donnell Brain Institute a model environment for brain science and clinical care requires innovation not just in the lab and clinic, but throughout our organization.

Our signature initiatives show how we put our beliefs into action. Focusing on the recruitment, education, mentorship, and retention of the brightest talent, these initiatives reflect our commitment to building our community, now and for the future.
