The African Ancestry Neuroscience Research Initiative (AANRI) aims to close the gap in brain research that has consistently underrepresented African Americans and to create the most comprehensive African-ancestry, brain-genomic dataset in the world, with the ultimate goal to develop new therapeutics and prevention strategies for brain disorders.
The AANRI is a partnership between prominent community leaders in Baltimore, the Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) and Morgan State University. The AANRI will establish a road map to help close the gap in health disparities and ensure that genomic research and neuroscience studies are representative of individuals across all populations, including African ancestry.
The AANRI leadership invites you to attend African Ancestry Brain Health, a Community-Engaged Discussion, a virtual symposium on April 15th. Highlights will include a keynote address from Dr. James Hildreth, President of Meharry Medical College, and a Diversity & Inclusion Student panel focused on expanding minority student engagement in brain research training.
