Division of Industry Community Network (ICN)
The Department of Neurosciences, School of Medical Sciences of the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), with the support received from the Division Of Industry and Community Network (ICN) USM, has achieved a lasting community-engagement project with the establishment of two school- based Neuroscience Clubs, namely from Sek. Keb Kubang Kerian 3 (SKK3) and Sek. Men. Sains Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra (SMSTMFP). This was achieved through our three- phase ICN project entitled “Brain Research and Awareness: 1Nation (B.R.A.1.N) that featured range of community- engagement activities in promoting and educating the public on the human brain, in health and in disease. The project also targeted primary and secondary school students to enthuse neuroscience to them along with the emphasis on basic and life sciences in general with the hope of developing and improving our future community effort, and that this future will have desirable impacts both to the community as well as to the vision of USM, Humaniversiti.
