About CBMH

The Center for Brain & Mind Health (CBMH) promotes interdisciplinary clinical and translational research leading to the management, diagnosis, treatment of, and recovery from conditions that affect the mind and brain. The center fosters transformational work that bridges existing departments, levels of analysis, disciplinary boundaries, and a diversity of perspectives, focusing on areas of clinical and translational neuroscience that are broader than any single disease.

Center for Brain & Mind Health Leadership

The Center is committed to transformational work that bridges existing departments, levels of analysis, and disciplinary boundaries and focuses on defined areas of clinical and translational neuroscience, broader than any single disease.

The CBMH advances clinical and translational neuroscience by bringing together existing expertise within Yale and the Yale New Haven Health community, by recruiting new faculty as Center members with research areas complementing Yale’s strengths, and through funding and educational initiatives.

The CBMH is led by a group of Directors representing Yale leaders in clinical and translational neuroscience.

Collaboration & Education

CBMH internal pilot grants will support synergies among researchers in clinical and translational neuroscience, elevating collaboration and cross-disciplinary science. This grant program will emphasize novel multiple-PI collaborations, cross-departmental and/or cross-disciplinary work, and a focus on clinical and translational neuroscience with the potential to touch patients. The CBMH will cultivate education and training programs in clinical and translational neuroscience research via post-doctoral fellowships for clinical and translational neuroscience trainees, by offering a junior faculty training slot within existing physician-scientist training mechanisms, and by coordinating workshops and seminars to bring together the translational neuroscience community across departments and schools.
