Annual Letter 2023
One year ago, we launched Huberman Lab Premium in response to growing interest from listeners who wanted to both support our mission and help advance important scientific research that stands to powerfully benefit the mental health, physical health and performance of children and adults.
We made a commitment to donate a significant portion of the proceeds to research meeting those criteria, especially work that stood to be of immediate benefit upon completion. Thus, we are excited to share that thanks to the support from our Premium members, the first year of Huberman Lab Premium has been a resounding success.
In the past year, along with a dollar-for-dollar match from the Tiny Foundation, our Premium members allowed us to contribute over $500,000 to five separate research projects and to meaningfully support student fellowships so that highly deserving aspiring young scientists could attend a critical scientific meeting.

As we approach 2024 with your support, we are excited to fund critical research across multiple laboratories and projects again. In doing so, we will provide updates on progress on key findings while also highlighting new contributions to other laboratories.
Thanks to the growing support from our Premium members, the dollar-for-dollar match from the Tiny Foundation, and a new anonymous donor, we intend to expand the total dollar amount being gifted this next year to have an even greater impact on scientific progress and our understanding of human health and performance.
A sincere thank you to all of you who are helping make this important research and philanthropy possible. And last but certainly not least, thank you for your interest in science!
Andrew and the Huberman Lab Team
