Brain Mapping Foundation launched National Center for Nano-Bio-Electronics in 2011

The NCNBE mission is to establish collaborating research laboratories and network throughout the state of California and beyond in order to rapidly develop solutions for neurological disorders employing advances in nanotechnology, stem cell research, medical devices (nano-bio-electronics) while fostering biotech spinoffs for the purpose of job creation.

NCNBE promotes the public welfare and improves patient care through the translation of new technologies into life saving diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The center is committed to excellence in education, and scientific discovery. The NCNBE achieves its mission through multi-disciplinary collaborations/consortium with government agencies, patient advocacy groups, educational institutions, private sector, industry, and philanthropic organizations: http://www.brainmappingfoundation.org/ncnbe
