Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation Center


The Penn Brain Science, Translation, Innovation, and Modulation (brainSTIM) Center brings together a team of leading neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and engineers from the University of Pennsylvania who use groundbreaking neuromodulation techniques to research, repair, and enhance human brain function. In order to accomplish this goal, the brainSTIM Center has created a framework for cooperation that cuts across departmental and institutional boundaries. The center promotes intellectually rewarding, productive, and novel scientific collaborations in the field of neuromodulation by leveraging critical skills and resources, creating unique opportunities for growth, innovation, and sustainability for neuromodulation research.

  • Director Roy Hamilton awarded a Science Diversity Leadership Award from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative


    Dr. Roy Hamilton is an awardee of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Science Diversity Leadership Award for his work "Stimulating Brain Networks for Language and Building Networks in the Black Community to Fight Aphasia"


    This project will use network neuroscience tools to find targets for the treatment of post-stroke aphasia through transcranial magnetic stimulation and enhance research diversity by engaging the local Black community.


    CZI partnered with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to launch the Science Diversity Leadership program, a funding opportunity that aims to recognize and further the leadership of excellent biomedical researchers who — through their outreach, mentoring, teaching, and leadership — have a record of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in their scientific fields
