Researchers studying the brain on a computer

Learning to harness neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to rewire itself, presents a new frontier for healing from brain disorders. Researchers hope a new study, funded by a gift from the Coleman Fung Foundation, will set the stage for further discoveries in neuroplasticity.

John Paul Dejoria, Tim Mercer and Clay Johnston

Austin philanthropists John Paul and Eloise DeJoria and their family foundation created an endowment to provide ongoing support for Dell Med’s faculty leader and programs improving health for people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity, as well as other vulnerable populations.
