"Rarely in basic or clinical research do we have the thrill of seeing results translated into therapies that transform lives. Such an opportunity now exists within the Stanford Institute of Neuro-innovation and Translational Neurosciences where critical discoveries in the laboratory are being translated into viable treatment strategies for patients and their families."

- Craig Heller, PhD, Director
