CfNN Team.


The mission of the VA RR&D Center for Neurorestoration and Neurotechnology is to discover, design, develop, and deploy novel neurotechnologies and device-based therapies that advance the rehabilitation of Veterans with impairments in mobility, communication, mental health, and limb function.


CfNN’s vision is to improve the physical function, mental health, and quality of life of Veterans. We achieve this by facilitating deeply collaborative research between CfNN scientists, VAPHS and other RR&D Center researchers, and CfNN’s university and hospital affiliates.
