Definition A private philanthropy with principal inte A private philanthropy with principal interests in brain science, immunology, and arts education. This portal serves as a gateway to brain information you can rely on. Visit the BrainWeb section to find general information about the brain and current brain research, as well as links to validated sites related to more than 25 brain disorders. Brainy Kids Online offers children, teens, parents and teachers links to games, labs, excellent education resources and lesson plans. Brain Resources for Seniors provides older adults and their caretakers with links to sites related to brain health, education and general information. Our Arts Education pages support the training of in-school arts specialists. Our News and Publication section, books page and journals Cerebrum and BrainWork offer breaking news and analysis.<br /> Dana also sponsors many public events, including lectures and forums featuring experts on timely topics in science, the arts and in education. Many of the events are available as podcasts, along with interviews, radio programs and other media resources.<br /> Dana Press publishes books and news on health and popular science for the general reader and comments on recent books and news on its blog. It also publishes Cerebrum, an online journal of opinion with articles and book reviews exploring the impact of brain research on daily life and society. Other publications, distributed free, are for general readers, BrainWork, a bi-monthly newsletter, three periodicals reprinting news articles about the brain, immunology, and arts education, and several special publications for students and educators in those fields, as well as the Dana Foundation annual report and other materials from the foundation and the Dana Alliance.<br /> The Foundation provides reliable information and resources -- as well as access to experts -- to journalists, science writers and producers. Specifically, the Neuroscience Resource Service provides background and referrals to top experts in the field. Through these channels, you can get information on anything you've ever wanted to know about the brain, including: addiction, Alzheimer's disease, child development, the genetics of diseases, the latest in imaging techniques, questions in neuroethics, spinal cord injury, stroke and more.<br /> Dana sponsors many public events, including lectures and forums featuring experts on timely topics in neuroscience, the arts and in education. It also sponsors forums and workshops for working scientists and others to share information across disciplines, and for artists to share their successes in teaching in the schools. Additionally, it funds programs for science teachers to help them integrate more and current brain science into their teaching.<br /> The Dana Foundations science and health grants support brain research in neuroscience and immunology and their interrelationship in human health and disease. The grant sections include brain and immuno-imaging, clinical neuroscience research, human immunology and neuroimmunology. The Foundation also occasionally sponsors workshops and forums for working scientists, as well as offering funding for selected young researchers to continue their education or to attend seminars and workshops elsewhere. This support goes to organizations, not directly to individual scientists.<br /> In addition, through programs that it initiates, the Foundation supports collaborations with other organizations to enhance the neuroscience curricula in K-12 schools. These efforts include dissemination of current, credible information on the brain, teacher workshops, talks by neuroscientists, and teachers' guides.<br /> entists, and teachers' guides.<br />
