The Cambridge Neuroscience Society (CamBRAIN) is a young-investigators’ society at the University of Cambridge, dedicated to uniting all undergraduate, postgraduate, research assistant and post-doctoral members with an interest in neuroscience.

The major aim of CamBRAIN is to foster collaboration and communication amongst its members, appreciating the diversity of research and interests that fall under the umbrella of this rapidly expanding and exciting field. In addition to academic talks, presentations and workshops intended for personal/career development, CamBRAIN runs a series of social events which allow our members to share experiences and build successful networks.

Moreover, interest groups spanning women in neuroscience, neuroethics, global mental health, neurolaw, brain art and mental wellbeing all aim to provide our members with the opportunity to explore their passions in a variety neuroscientific disciplines.


Membership to the society is FREE. Please join our mailing list here or the CUSU website to receive more information on the CamBRAIN news and events.
