The science hope demands


We are a research institute dedicated to finding cures for chronic neurological disabilities. We translate groundbreaking research into clinical treatments so that people can see, talk, and walk again.

The longing for hope

More people than ever are living with chronic neurological issues caused by strokes, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Their prospect for recovery too often feels hopeless, as they wait for major breakthroughs in treatments and cures. With brilliant and compassionate science that leads to life-changing cures, we can change this.

Our Role & Cause

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury
52% are considered paraplegic. 47% are considered quadriplegic.

The science hope demands

Hope demands brilliant science, and every day we translate groundbreaking research into promising neurological treatments. We put patients at the center of discovery by combining rigorous science and specialized clinics.

Our Research

Faculty Spotlight

In the Human Motor Recovery Laboratory, we are studying the control of movements after neurological injury, particularly after stroke.

The Yoshida Laboratory is interested in formation, function, and regeneration of motor circuits controlling locomotor and skilled movements.

Hill laboratory focuses on spinal cord injury repair and the development of therapeutic interventions to promote recovery of function.
