'The Science Bridge' (TSB) initiative employs 'science for diplomacy' to improve human relations between nations and cultures. We are a global initiative, representing all people, all cultures and all nations. Our current project is focused to help improve relations between the Western and the Middle-Eastern countries. To achieve this goal, TSB aims to build 'Twin Institutes', which will be located between the collaborating nations, for example, one in a Western country and another one in a Middle-Eastern country. In each institute, we will bring together neuroscientists from around the world to conduct research on the brain and the nervous system. With our collective minds and hearts focused towards a common goal, we will strive to understand complex brain functions and also find treatments for neurological and psychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer's, while at the same time improve relations between diverse world cultures. Our researchers are accomplished scientists in the field of neuroscience from around the world who share our vision and commitment. Through scientific collaboration, we will also take a positive step towards peace between the West and the Middle-East, in particular, and between the West and the so-called Muslim world, in general, by demonstrating that the two can work together for the benefit of humanity.
