Benefits of IBRO Membership


Neuroscience is one of the fastest growing areas of science in the world today, offering unprecedented opportunities for the amelioration of some of the most deadly and disabling human diseases. IBRO, the International Brain Research Organization, supports and promotes this expanding field of research around the world.

Since its inception in 1961, IBRO has been the global coordinator for neuroscience research, providing the infrastructure within which many national and regional organizations flourish. IBRO has broken through frontiers between Eastern and Western scientists in the post-war period. It has been responsible for the creation of national and supranational societies devoted to neuroscience. It has also united the world of neuroscience in developed countries and helped to establish and cultivate neuroscience in developing countries.

Membership in IBRO makes your society or organization a member of a worldwide network that represents – and connects – more than 80,000 neuroscientists from over 90 organizations in more than 60 countries worldwide.

Benefits of IBRO membership include:

  • Global outreach for your society or organization through IBRO’s many programmes focusing on collaborative research and international cooperation.
  • IBRO’s unique expertise and experience in training programmes that foster international contacts and future alliances.
  • Numerous networking, academic exchange and other career-enhancing opportunities for your members through our regional and international meetings, trainings, laboratory short-stays, volunteer opportunities and committee positions.
  • Representation on the IBRO Governing Council, where you will help shape the direction of IBRO’s future programmes, World Congresses, and other far-reaching initiatives.
  • Opportunities for representation through your associated IBRO Regional Committee, which sets priorities and organizes activities to promote neuroscience training and support locally, while maximizing the use of regional talent and preventing brain drain toward countries with greater resources or more established infrastructures.

The mission of IBRO is to support and promote neuroscience around the world. The ability to pay dues should not be a barrier to becoming an IBRO Member. For more information, please contact Tawanda Daka at
