What is the International Youth Neuroscience Association?

The International Youth Neuroscience Association (IYNA) is a global, youth-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to inspiring the next generation of neuroscientists. Our mission is to introduce students to the excitement of scientific inquiry and enable them to explore the wonders of the brain. Our mission is to provide high quality, open access opportunities that allow students to authentically pursue neuroscience. We accomplish this by hosting a variety of open-access, high quality events and programs including Youth Neuroscience (our summer program), the IYNA Annual Ideathon, and Brain Bee Bootcamps. Additionally, young neuroscience enthusiasts have the opportunity to receive special training through our series of webinars and experience through publishing in the IYNA Journal. Read More
