Inside the Keck Center

The W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience is dedicated to multidisciplinary collaborative research and to accelerating the translation of scientific discoveries into effective human therapies.

The focus of the Center’s work is spinal cord injury with findings also applicable to persons with brain injuries, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS), transverse myelitis, and other problems of the central nervous system.

The W. M. Keck Center operates on the belief that a cure is achievable and that collaboration is the means by which that goal will be reached.

We have embarked on one of the most ambitious journeys in human history: to achieve something that was deemed impossible by many generations of scientists and clinicians.
