Brain Mapping Foundation: History: The Foundation was established in 2004 by a neuroscientist, Babak Kateb,in order to advance cross pollination of ideas across physical sciences into biological sciences/neuroscience. The organization provides funding to the members of the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics (SBMT). One of the main focus of the foundation is further establish and fund National Center for NanoBioElectronics (NCNBE) in order to rapidly integrate nanotechnology, devices, imaging, cellular and stem cell therapy. Brain Mapping defined as: The study of the anatomy and function of the brain and spinal cord through the use of imaging (including intra-operative, Microscopic, Endoscopic and Multi-Modality imaging), Immunohistochemistry, Molecular & optogenetics, Stem cell and Cellular Biology, Engineering (material, electrical and biomedical), Neurophysiology and Nanotechnology. Mission: Brain Mapping Foundation (BMF) is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization, which is establish for the purpose of facilitating multidisciplinary brain and spinal cord research and expediting integration of cutting-edge technologies into the field of neuroscience. BMF is focused on translating state-of-the-art technologies from NASA, DOD and industry into neurosurgery/neuroscience in order to bring the most advanced medicine to wounded warriors and civilians with neurological disorders. Special Projects: Currently the organization is focused on establishing Global Alliance for Nano-Bio-Electronics through its National Center for NanoBioElectronic. In this regard the Foundation has established significant ties with international partners and plan to launch a global consortium in Neuroscience with specific aim of integrating nanotechnology, device, imaging and cellular therapy. NCNBE is also has launched a graduate training program in NanoBioElectronic, which will be offering a Doctoral degree in NanoBioElectronics. Publication: BMF has been a major supporter of Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics (SBMT) annual meetings and its publications. Foundation played a major role in publishing the first Textbook of Nanoneuroscience and Nanoneurosurgery: Funded projects: Foundation funds Multidisciplinary translation research such as: 1. Galaxy-Exploring Camera to Be Used in the Operating Room 2. JPL Nanotubes Help Advance Brain Tumor Research 3. NASA's Electronic Nose May Provide Neurosurgeons with A New Weapon Against Brain Cancer 4. X Marks the Spot BM Foundation has been supporting annual meetings of Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics in last 10 years. Brain Mapping Day: Brain Mapping Foundation is collaboration with the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics (SBMT) hold Brain Mapping Days at the US Congress and Canadian Parliament in order to educate policymakers about the state-of-the-art in neuroscience. For more information about the Brain Mapping Days please visit: and Brain Mapping Foundation Gala: Brain Mapping Foundation organize annual black tie award gala in partnership with SBMT, industry leaders and other foundation in order to highlight the good work done by the scientists, industry leaders, individuals and policymakers. Global Physicians and Scientists (GPS): GPS is a humanitarian program, which is focused on mobilizing physicians, scientist and surgeons to serve for few weeks in the poor and rural areas of the United States and abroad. This program will collaborate with industry and government officials and will use the national and international SBMT centers as bases of operations. The program is designed to not only help alleviate healthcare disparities by bringing world class physicians to the poor areas but also help improve local economy through micro and neuroEconomics.
