Presentation of the project LabEx BRAIN

Bordeaux Region Aquitaine Initiative for Neurosciences


BRAIN is the Laboratory of Excellence (i.e. cluster of excellence), specialized in neuroscience, in Bordeaux, headed by Daniel Choquet.

Thanks to the Investissement d'Avenir program, the LabEx BRAIN has obtained significant means to compete with its foreign counterparts and increase the international visibility of Bordeaux Neuroscience. The LabEx BRAIN project has received 20M€ of total funding through 2019. Its general ambition is to position our research community as a key player in the creation of new knowledge and the discovery of new treatments for neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases at the European and global level. BRAIN also participates in the development of local employment with the emergence of start-ups, and is now becoming the reference for European training in neuroscience.
