Increasing the brain health span – implications for research, clinical care, policy and economics

Presenter Details
Harris A. Eyre, MD, PhD
Harris A. Eyre, MD, PhD
Fellow in Brain Health, Center for Health and Biosciences
Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy

Dr. Eyre has worked as a physician, scientist, entrepreneur, executive services provider, author, new economic and finance thinker, and neuroscience communicator. He is a fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy and the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute. He leads the Brain Capital Alliance and co-leads the OECD Neuroscience-inspired Policy Initiative. Eyre is the lead editor of the book Convergence Mental Health (Oxford University Press).

Harris believes the world increasingly relies on brain capital, where a premium is put on brain skills and health (e.g., an individual’s cognitive, emotional, and social brain resources). Investing in building brain capital is fundamental to meet modern societal challenges and drive innovation. He leads the development of the brain capital field and seeks to place it at the center of economics, policy, finance and technology.
