Announcing the 2023 graduate and postdoctoral scholars

We are proud to announce and congratulate the 2023 cohort of Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance Graduate and Postdoctoral Scholars at Stanford. The program supports outstanding Stanford doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows engaged in human performance research by providing a collaborative and interdisciplinary community in which to conduct human performance research. They will conduct high-impact research projects with Stanford faculty mentors in the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, and Humanities & Sciences.
