Our Mission: to Help People Lead Healthy, Fulfilling Lives

The common thread tying together all of our research is patient well-being. While a number of our programs and clinical studies are born in the imaginations of our investigators, many of our efforts begin with a patient’s or parent’s question: Will I able to walk on my own again? Will my daughter be able to go back to school?

For more than 200 years, our researchers have made a difference by relentlessly pursuing the answers to questions like these, and they will leave no stone unturned to help people today — and future generations —  enjoy the healthiest lives possible.
