Transforming Human Health through the Science of Peak Performance
Watch Who we are
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.
A university-wide research initiative
We invite faculty, students, staff, alumni, friends, and external organizations to participate in the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance at Stanford.
Our Stanford Vision
The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance at Stanford is a university-wide research initiative that leverages Stanford’s exceptional research, outstanding athletics, and innovative spirit. We are creating a community that draws on diverse efforts across campus to uncover the fundamental principles of peak performance. Through our programs, we are developing the knowledge, the people, and the tools to make optimal health more accessible to all. We hope you will join us in our mission.
