Jennifer and Peter Roberts have made a magnanimous
one million dollar gift to catapult The BrainHealth®
Project’s innovative technology development. They
have opened doors for others to build momentum at
UTDallas’ Center for BrainHealth, which is leading an
international collaboration of top scientists at major
research institutes including Berkeley, UCSF, Stanford,
MIT, Harvard and others.The BrainHealth Project assesses a multitude of
health data, with the goal of reaching at least 120,000
individuals, engaging and tracking progress over 10
years. This endeavor elevates the new frontier of brain
health to significantly enhance brain performance at
every stage of life.
The ability to strengthen and lengthen brain capacity
is something we all want. As a businessperson, I know
how progress in this ONE area would be a tremendous
game-changer for our families, institutions and nation.
No one wants to outlive their brain’s functionality, which
currently happens far too often,” said Mr. Roberts.
Shortly after moving to Dallas, Mrs. Roberts became
involved with BrainHealth after being inspired by a
leader of the Think Ahead Group of young professionals.
The Robertses represent some of the Center’s most
enthusiastic donors and mentors. In addition to the
Project, they have supported the capital campaign for
the Brain Performance Institute, the Center’s Adolescent
Reasoning Initiative, and the Friends of BrainHealth to
support rising stars.
