(p. xi) Acknowledgments

The Oxford Handbook of Cultural Neuroscience represents the first collection of scholarly contributions from the International Cultural Neuroscience Consortium (ICNC), an interdisciplinary group of scholars from epidemiology, anthropology, psychology, neuroscience, genetics, and psychiatry dedicated to advancing an understanding of culture and health using theory and methods from cultural neuroscience. The Handbook is intended to introduce future generations of scholars to foundations in cultural neuroscience and population health disparities, and to equip them to address the grand challenges in global mental health in the twenty-first century.

The volume editors would like to thank Dr. Bill Elwood (NIMH) for his programmatic support of ICNC scholars. We recognize the early career research accomplishments of ICNC Student Travel Awardees including Brandon Ng (University of Virginia), Desiree Phua (Nanyang Technological University), Yi Huang (South China Normal University), Yang Qu (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), Alexandria West (York University), and Xiao-Fei Yang (University of Southern California). We warmly thank Brian Lai, Alissa Mrazek, Narun (Non) Pornpattananangkul, and Vernon Smith for their assistance with conference organization; Kylah Eagan, Tomeka Bolar, and Patricia Reese for their administrative support; and Mark Schurgin for his technical assistance. We thank the Cells to Society Program at Northwestern University’s Institute for Policy Research for their co-sponsorship with the National Institutes of Health OppNet Program. We are grateful to the editors from Oxford University Press for their editorial guidance.
