Northwestern University Brain Awareness Outreach (NUBAO) is a graduate student-led public outreach initiative dedicated to educating, exciting, and inspiring the Chicago community about the brain. Founded in 2010 as part of the Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience PhD Program, NUBAO consists of a diverse group of mostly graduate students, in addition to several undergraduate students, post-doctorate fellows, faculty, and research staff from various departments and scientific disciplines at Northwestern University.

In partnership with the Chicago Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience and Northwestern University's Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program, NUBAO invites middle school and high school science educators from the Chicago area to apply to attend their 5th Annual Brain Awareness Teachers Workshop. This day-long event features a keynote lecture entitled “How Trauma and Adversity Shape Development and What We Can Do About It” by University of Chicago Associate Professor Dr. Bradly Stolbach, a lunch-and-learn seminar entitled “The Molecular Basis of Neuromodulation in the Brain: From Genes to Behavior” by Northwestern University postdoctoral fellow Dr. Nino Tabatadze, and four pedagogical workshops taught by graduate student volunteers, featuring hands-on neuroscience activities that can be easily introduced into the classroom.

NUBAO is always looking for enthusiastic science-minded volunteers!
