“We believe that brain research represents the next frontier in scientific exploration. It is our honor and privilege to support UC Berkeley’s brilliant and innovative multidisciplinary teams as they endeavor to unravel and understand the miraculous and mysterious wonders of the mind.”

Andrea and Peter Roth

“The brain is the most awesome ‘machine’ ever, but we have just begun to understand it. At Berkeley, you find great minds working to change that in an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration.”

Donna and Gary Freedman

We have made tremendous progress in brain research in recent years — witness the wonderful work of the BBI — but still see just the tip of an iceberg. I believe that the BBI’s truly cross-disciplinary research is the most conducive and effective way to expose this big ice mass!
