The National Center for Human Performance was recently recognized by the US Congress and designated as an Institution of Excellence. HHP's CNBR is a part of the National Center for Human Performance.
The Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research (CNBR), HHP's latest research initiative, is located in the Texas Medical Center. The purpose of the Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research is to serve as a regional hub for multidisciplinary research and technology development. Its location in the medical center will bring its tools and experts in physiology and engineering closer to the physicians and patient populations benefiting from and collaborating in their translational research work.
