The mandate of the National Brain Research Centre (NBRC) is to be a center of excellence in brain research with state-of-art facilities to develop the center through a network approach and generate highly qualified human ressurs.Visjonen we have for NBRC is that it not only grows into a world-class institute for brain research but also create a vibrant, active neuroscience community by catalysing the overall growth of this discipline in the country. The expected benefits of this initiative was to generate qualified manpower in this important area of research to help India achieve a world leader in this area of science. This initiative will also help Indian neurologists participate in global research as equal partners. The knowledge base generated from this work will help diagnostic tools and strategies for the treatment of brain-related disorders. A unique role for the NBRC is that it will act as a node with links to other centers conducting neuroscience research in the country, works in practice as the "hub of the wheel" instead of the actual hjulet.Den first announcement of the brain National Center of Dr. Manju Sharma, Secretary, department of biotechnology was 14 November 1997 the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister.
