Transforming Human Health through the Science of Peak Performance
Watch Who we are
The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance is discovering biological principles to optimize human performance and catalyze innovations in human health for all.
Almost all of what we know about health comes from the study of disease. Our scientific collaboration takes the opposite approach: we are studying peak performance, with the goal of enabling all people to achieve optimal health and well-being.
By comprehensively studying athletes of various ages, genders, ethnicities, abilities, and disciplines, the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance is trailblazing new possibilities.
Join our mailing list to receive the latest information and updates on the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance.
We are discovering the fundamental biological principles underlying peak performance. With our newfound insights, we will develop breakthroughs in understanding, treatments, and technology to help all people thrive.
Our vibrant community of researchers, trainees, athletes, coaches, and clinicians is working together to help shape the future of human performance. We welcome new partners to join us in our endeavor.
