Brain Health Nexus

One Brain. One System. One Mission.

Compromised brain health underlies neurodegenerative, neurodevelopmental, neurocognitive and mental disorders and directly impacts 1 in 3 people worldwide.

As the second leading cause of death and a leading cause of illness and of disability, these disorders significantly reduce human capabilities and productivity, and the quality of life of those directly affected, as well as their families and caregivers.

Flipping the script to brain health

While the burden of brain disease has driven attention and investments in research and care, we have been moving to an asset model that focuses on prevention, wellness and optimization across the lifespan.

This approach underlies the concept of ‘brain capital,’ which links brain health and brain skills to economic prosperity.

The Brain Health Nexus

The mission is bigger than one researcher, one organization or one country.

The Nexus will convene world leaders in brain health policy, patient advocacy, clinical care models, research and innovation to drive collective action to advance brain health for all citizens globally.

Brain Health Nexus
Important Announcement - Summit Postponed

Regretfully, due to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 Omicron variant, we have decided to postpone Brain Health Nexus (previously scheduled for February 2022) to October 18-19, 2022. 

We apologize for this inconvenience, but our first and foremost concern is the health and safety of our participants.
