The program aims to:

  • Provide an intensive training in the field of compassion research including compassion’s effects on behavior, physiology, overall health, and the brain
  • Foster dialog, research collaborations, and knowledge exchange between expert faculty and young researchers (graduate students and postdocs) in the field of compassion research
  • Delineate research questions and gaps in the field of compassion research in order to highlight new directions for research
  • Develop a community of young scientists (graduate students and post-docs) dedicated to researching compassion
  • To support young scientists wishing to conduct compassion research with pilot funding through a competitive research grant application
