Mission

The Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain is dedicated to fostering the healthy brain function of children across the lifespan.

Our goal is to set and maintain a healthy trajectory for all children toward positive life outcomes through early neurobehavioral and mental health assessment, innovative targeted interventions, informed policy-making, compassionate child-advocacy, and community education.

MIDB accomplishes this goal by providing opportunities for scholars across intersecting disciplines, community partners, and policy makers to share resources, integrate existing talent, foster new collaborations, and pioneer new research and service delivery approaches to improve early brain health and to ensure optimal adult outcomes.
