It is BMI’s vision to become a world-leading research institute that makes discoveries in basic mechanisms of complex neurological conditions with the ultimate goal to enhance treatments of these conditions using molecular, cellular, behavioral, and engineering therapies and solutions for optimizing human development, enhancing learning, and improving quality of life.

Our mission includes:

  1. Conducting cutting edge, interdisciplinary research to solve complex research problems concerning language, cognition, learning and their neural and neurogenetic underpinnings from molecule to behavior.
  2. Solving these complex neurological research problems with strategic research partners nationally and internationally.
  3. Translating our laboratory findings into clinical and educational practices with community partners.
