Partners play a vital role in helping to set our research direction, supporting our work, connecting us with families, providing expertise, and ultimately putting our findings to use in clinical and service settings, as well as within the home.
Company partners provide insight to key areas of research and help fast track discoveries toward commercialization. Kids Brain Health Network welcomes the opportunity to explore partnership with private companies in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, software, multi-media, and informatics, as well as the treatment and service sectors.
Kids Brain Health Network partners with many not-for-profit organizations and foundations that deal directly with families. These collaborations are central to our ongoing.
