"A Trip Through the Mind" Annual Fundraising Gala

Thursday, 24 March, 2022 7:00 pm
The Argyle

Join us for a mesmerizing journey through the mysteries of the mind as The Argyle is transformed into a point of departure for new realities and possibilities. Expand your consciousness, question the nature of reality, and travel through the unknown on a trip to self-discovery. Come celebrate our unique history as an organization focused on the power of the human mind, which began with Tom Slick's trip to Nepal in search of the Yeti, and the mysterious powers he observed in the holy people he met, which inspired him to found Mind Science.

Your support of our annual fundraiser makes it possible for us to increase 2022 funding to $100,000 for our signature program, The BrainStorm Neuroscience Pitch Competition™, the latest way in which Mind Science grants fund early-career researchers. Using a model that teams young investigators with senior principal investigators in powerful labs to work on pilot studies, Mind Science support makes critical investments in the development of pilot data, leading to greater funding opportunities, while early-career researchers hone their skills in translating complex neuroscience for the public.
