  • KAVLI NEUROSCIENCE DISTINGUISHED FELLOWS PROGRAM

    • This program was established to provide a cross-disciplinary training platform for Postdoctoral Fellows through the support of bold research that bridges neuroscience to engineering and data science. Kavli NDI recognizes that Postdoctoral fellows are a highly skilled research force that are often the driving force in breakthrough discoveries. This program aims to foster groundbreaking discoveries while equipping our scientists with interdisciplinary skills and mindset for their future careers.

  • KAVLI NDI DISTINGUISHED VISITING SCIENTISTS

    • Understanding how the brain harnesses the ability to adapt, learn, and problem solve, whether in early development, through aging or in the face of disease is a challenge that is being tackled by scientists across the globe. The Kavli NDI Visiting Scientist Program was developed to integrate this global community by fostering collaborations between Kavli NDI members and internationally renowned scientists. Visiting scientists are hosted by Kavli NDI to share their expertise and stimulate interdisciplinary scientific interactions that advance our understanding of the structure and function of the brain.
