Brain research is one of the frontier research areas of this century. Brain research is recognized explicitly as having become an interdisciplinary scientific endeavor. The complexity of the problems involved requires the participation of the best intellects in many diverse fields: mathematicians, physicists, chemists, information scientists, engineers, philosophers, artists and humanists, in addition to the biologists and physicians. It is inherently a multi-disciplinary activity that benefits from the input of every intellectual enterprise practiced by humanity.

The small and isolated nature of academic departments in Taiwan makes this endeavor difficult to carry out using our existing research infrastructure. To circumvent this problem of insufficient critical mass, the University System of Taiwan (UST) establishes the Brain Research Center (BRC) that draws on the complementary resources of the best research groups already working in this area on four participating campuses.

The goal of BRC is to integrate and strengthen existing biomedical, biophysical, and biochemical collaborations among the four universities, to encourage interdisciplinary research activity by inviting the participation of UST¡¦s mathematicians, information scientists, and engineers who are interested in the development of theoretical and computational neuroscience, and to recruit aggressively outstanding scientists to join our effort.
