Connecting the Boston memory community

CRAM logo

Organized in 2005, the Charles River Association for Memory is a group of researchers based in Boston, loosely arrayed along both sides of the Charles River. Individuals from labs at Harvard, MIT, BU, BC, MGH, BWH, JPVA, Tufts, Brandeis, Wellesley, and other institutions participate.

We seek to achieve three primary goals:
  • To provide a forum through which Boston-area researchers studying memory can exchange ideas and discuss issues common to our field;
  • to foster the development of a network of researchers studying memory to spur collaborative research and training efforts, as well as collective use of resources;
  • to encourage the development of shared learning tools for trainees at all levels.

Researchers of all levels (student through faculty) studying memory are invited to participate in CRAM activities.

Our primary activity, at present, centers around annual meetings. We are also working to develop web-based resources for sharing information and connecting people.

Please contact us to make any suggestions or to join CRAM.
