Some brain specimens and models will be made available to the participants to enable them to appreciate the organ and some books and erasers (DANA’s brain model) will also be giving to them.
A symposium focused on Mobilization of grants and fundings for Neuroscience research in Southwest Nigeria.
Our Goal: The group is set to create massive awareness among students in various institutions across the State and the Country at large and brainstorming opportunities on the way forward in funding mobilization for Neuroscience research. This would be achieved by making provision for brain specimens and models for the students and for proper orientation about the brain and neuroscience at large while neuro researchers also have effective deliberations and strategic planning on sourcing funds.
Expected Outcome: At the end of the year 2021 BAW campaign, 5000 participants including both teachers and students in both secondary and tertiary levels Ekiti state, Nigeria would have been reached.
