As a long-time fixture of the Music Festival for Brain Health, the Scientific Symposium provides a welcoming, highly educational experience for everyone who attends. Held in an outdoor tent on the grounds of Staglin Family Vineyard, the Scientific Symposium is moderated by Eric Nestler, MD, PhD, Director Friedman Brain Institute and has featured such all-star guest speakers such as Victor Dzau, MD, President of the National Academy of Medicine; Tom Insel, former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health; Michelle Craske, PhD, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA; Steven Hyman, MD, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT; and John Krystal, MD, Yale School of Medicine.


Guests of the Scientific Symposium are treated to highly informative presentations about the most current brain science backed by follow on Q&A sessions. The open and accepting environment of the event provides an atmosphere of hope and encouragement for the future of brain health. In addition to the featured speakers, the Scientific Symposium also include the most recent One Mind Rising Star Award winners who give presentations about their funded research projects.
