Understanding Neurodevelopment, Quality of Life, Mental Health and Functional Survival 
through Research

We are a university-based, multi-disciplinary group focused on assessing brain behavior integrity across the lifespan in at-risk individuals in resource-constrained resources, with a special emphasis in Africa and Latin America.

Differences can be made for someone's life and community when we better understand their mental health.
