OUR VISION

By integrating cutting edge research ideas and approaches from prominent interdisciplinary researchers across academia, industry and the government, we are committed to developing and delivering novel approaches and solutions to detect, treat and prevent traumatic brain injuries.

Our approach is centered around a synergistic multiscale integration of scientific discovery at the cellular and subcellular level to rapid commercial translation at the human level to provide accurate information and protection solutions for our warfighters and citizens.
