Brain health has profound implications for every person across their lifespan. Texas Healthy Brain Initiative is dedicated to advancing brain health research in Texas through state appropriated funding and support for translational biomedical research on brain health.

Such efforts can lead to a ground swell of innovation ranging from precision diagnostics and treatments to future-proofing economic policies and innovative investing models that put brain health at the forefront.
