Research Team Structure

Scientists at KITE are grouped along two axes: Functional Teams and Special Initiatives Programs. Functional Teams provide a supportive ecosystem for scientists, staff, and trainees, offering mentorship, assistance, and professional growth opportunities to all KITE members. Special Initiatives Programs focus on developing new, innovative ideas that KITE PIs may collectively wish to pursue.

The six Functional Teams are:

Neurorehabilitation and Neuroscience Team Lead - Behrang Keshavarz
Multisystem and Musculoskeletal Rehab Team Lead - Alison Novak
Complex Continuing Care Team Lead - Sarah Munce

The three Special Initiatives Programs focusing on the Institute’s three priorities are:

  • Prevention
  • Restoration of Function
  • Community Integration
