Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Bioengineering approaches to neurological rehabilitation

Karunesh Ganguly is a graduate of Stanford University. He completed his MD and PhD degrees from the University of California, San Diego.  He subsequently completed his internal medicine and neurology training at the University ofCalifornia, San Francisco.  Dr. Ganguly then pursued research training in neural engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley.   

Dr. Ganguly started the Laboratory of Plasticity and Neuromotor Recovery in 2012.  The laboratory conducts both clinical and basic research in neurological rehabilitation.  The primary goal is to translate neural engineering and plasticity based treatments to patients with motor disability.  Areas of focus include:  1) Elucidating the network basis of motor learning in both the intact and the injured nervous system, 2) developing methods to enhance this process, 3) developing neuroprosthetics for patients with severe motor disability.
