About the Wearable Electronics Initiative (eWEAR)

eWEAR aims to solve challenges that will increase the usefulness of future wearable electronics.  eWEAR fosters multi-disciplinary approaches and collaboration between companies and Stanford University.  eWEAR highlights published research by Stanford professors, postdoctoral fellows and students to inform directions for wearables and implantable medical devices. 

About the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute

The Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute (TCCI®) was created in 2016 by Tianqiao Chen and his wife Chrissy Luo, the founders of Shanda Group, with a US $1 billion commitment to help advance fundamental brain research around the world. The organization’s vision is to improve the human experience by understanding how our brains perceive, learn and interact with the world.
