The mission of the Brain and Behavior Initiative (BBI) at the University of Maryland (UMD) is to revolutionize the interface between engineers and neuroscientists by generating novel tools and approaches to understand complex behaviors produced by the human brain.

We focus on the development of novel approaches to image neuronal function, the development of micro/nano system diagnostics and drug delivery technologies, and the development of big data methods in order to push the frontiers of our initial research themes that span from single neurons to mental health.
