The Center works to speed the development of novel, multidisciplinary approaches to address neurodegenerative diseases through research, clinical practice interventions, education and community collaborations.

Dr. Brinton joined the UA from the University of Southern California where she was the R.

Her professional memberships include the Society for Neuroscience and the International Brain Research Organization/World Federation of Neuroscientists. Dr. Brinton is co-founder of CoCensys, a biotechnology company engaged in the development of ethical pharmaceuticals to treat neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Dr. Brinton has received numerous awards and recognition for her research and STEM education initiatives.

She was included in U.S. News & World Report’s 2005 “Ten Best Minds” list, received the 2006 Society for Neuroscience Science Educator of the Year, and was awarded one of the nation’s highest civilian honors, the 2010 Presidential Citizens Medal, presented by President Barack Obama, for her work in promoting careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among minority students.

She is an internationally recognized neuroscientist with more than 250 invited presentations worldwide.
