To advance understanding and treatment of the brain and neurodegenerative diseases through collaborative research, education, and AI technology.
Our researchers are composed of neuroscientists, mathematicians, psychologists, computer scientists, and computational scientists – each bringing a new perspective to the complex questions we are looking to answer. Working across disciplines and creating ongoing partnerships allows us to fluidly exchange ideas, share data, and pull resources quickly. Collaborative research is at the forefront of our mission and we believe it to be the single most important piece in uncovering the mysteries of the brain.
Our research embraces diverse methods and ideas that have the potential to make breakthroughs in understanding brain function in health and disease. We are particularly interested in research that incorporates fundamentally new approaches to addressing longstanding problems. We are risk-takers; unapologetically and proudly so. We support efforts that bring us closer to discovering the latest, revolutionary neuro-technologies to treat brain disorders and accelerate neuroscience research. Additionally, through our work we are ensuring the development of improved therapies and alternative treatments for those suffering from mental health illnesses and neurodegenerative diseases today.
Our work is carried out with the intention that it will be shared and translated into tangible solutions to improve patients’ lives right now. By empowering the researchers we work with to develop their research into products and procedures, this becomes a reality. We want to be a global resource for those seeking to learn more about the conditions that degrade the brain. We believe everyone should have access to the latest developments in neuroscience research, to be able to advocate for their own health, and to be well informed of new, proven treatment options.
What Sets Us Apart
We focus on translating research into solutions that can be used right now. Much of our work is devoted to exploring the potential of technology and how it can benefit the medical field. Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives and has made vast improvements in so many areas from the way we communicate, connecting us to loved ones in other countries instantly, to capturing memories that sit in our pockets, to tracking how many steps we take in a day and monitoring our blood pressure. Why not then utilize new technology like AI, push the limits, and use it to learn about and treat diseases!
We believe collaboration is key and is what sets us apart. Our partners include the University of Oxford, MIT, and Georgetown University among others. We also pride ourselves on working across sectors; in the public sector and private, collaborating with industry leaders, startups, and entrepreneurs around the world. Why work within the narrow scope of a lab if we can share information and resources outside with other groups who are all looking to accomplish the same thing: to end neurodegeneration.
We empower people to regain control, be well informed, and give them the opportunity to equip themselves with the resources they need to feel confident about the choices they make regarding their own health or the well-being of loved ones. Most of the latest research in this area is written in scientific journals that are extremely difficult for the average person to read and understand. We are working to change that by writing reports on the state of these diseases annually in an approachable format accessible to anyone.
