Our Mission

Our mission is to revolutionize how we restore brain function for the benefit of patients suffering from neurological disorders and brain injuries.

A Synergistic Center

Understanding the human brain so that we may restore impaired cognitive and sensorimotor abilities is the greatest scientific, engineering, and social challenge of our time. No single institution can effectively tackle this enormous challenge.

That’s why the Center for Neuroengineering (CNE) has established a first-of-its-kind alliance of global leaders from four institutions – Georgetown University, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Technical University of Munich, and MedStar Health.
