Grace Greenwald founded The Synapse Project in 2011 when she was 15 years old. She became interested in neuroscience at a young age while sitting at the dinner table next to her grandmother, Glenda Greenwald, Founder of the Aspen Brain Forum, who told mesmerizing stories about the latest advancements in studying the brain. Grace’s goal became making “everything brain-related” available to girls of all ages like herself, and to get them talking and thinking about the brain in arenas of medicine, psychology, technology, education, and child development. Her vision for The Synapse Project was to connect young women interested in studying neuroscience to professors, scientists, and mentors who would generously donate their time and enthusiasm to ignite interest in the brain and help the next generation succeed in this rewarding career. Grace began her career path volunteering as an intern at exciting neuroscience-based organizations such as Brain Highways and The Goldie Hawn Foundation’s MindUp Program. She went on to work and have amazing learning experiences in neuroscience at the Salk Institute and Harvard University’s iLab. Grace is currently in the Class of 2019 at Stanford University.
