PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Neuroscientist Diane Lipscombe has been chosen to lead the brain science center at Brown University.

The Ivy League school announced Lipscombe’s appointment on Tuesday.

Lipscombe has served as interim director of the Brown Institute for Brain Science since January 2015. The school says she has helped in the development of a strategic plan and the raising of $6 million in philanthropic giving.

Lipscombe studied as a postdoctoral associate at Yale School of Medicine and Stanford University’s medical school before joining Brown. She earned her doctorate in pharmacology from University College London.

Lipscombe says there’s “no better place to be a brain scientist” than at Brown.

BIBS is a multidisciplinary research center comprised of more than 100 scholars from Brown and its affiliated hospitals.
