GBHI Team

The Global Brain Health Institute was established with two co-founding sites: the University of California, San Francisco (USA) and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). The faculty, staff, and affiliates at these institutions reflect the range of expertise needed to develop a brain health curriculum, mentor fellows and scholars, and support GBHI in fulfilling its mission.
