Colors of the Brain

Mission

Colors of the Brain was created in 2016 by UCSD neuroscience graduate students to build a community for ethnically underrepresented brain scientists. CoB hopes to share its enthusiasm for the brain sciences by providing these disadvantaged students real conversations about academia, graduate school applications, and the chance to be exposed to the brain sciences with lab tours. CoB hosts graduate application and graduate funding panels for UCSD minority undergraduates interested in STEM graduate programs. We coach mentees to apply for travel awards at various scientific conferences aimed at increasing minority participation in STEM. Our departmental affiliation is the Neurosciences Graduate Program at UCSD.

Hey! A Loaded Pipette is back from our mid-season break with an enlightening episode with Christian Cazares. Christian is a neuroscience PhD student at UCSD working on research around decision-making in the brain and how it’s affected by alcohol. With spicy pineapple margaritas in hand, Christian leads The Drunk Scientist through his uniquely interdisciplinary approach to neuro, the truth about the “acceptable” limits of alcohol, the meditative powers of skateboarding, and much more!
