The Power of Possible.

What do we mean when we talk about the power of possible?
At UConn Health, it is harnessing the unique nature of an academic medical center for the advancement of health and medicine. It’s scientists and researchers seeking to make the impossible possible for our patients. It’s teaching the next generation of healthcare providers to imagine beyond what is, to what can be. It’s our work at the bed side, every day; committed, passionate people caring for those trusting us in a moment of need.

Seeing beyond what is, to what’s possible.

At UConn Health, our researchers don’t study subjects. They care for people.

Stormy Chamberlain, assistant professor of genetics and genome sciences at UConn Health, is a new breed of scientist unafraid to let her research subjects have names and faces — and families. In fact, she invites them all into her UConn Health lab to meet her team of students and watch them research Angelman syndrome, a rare neurogenetic condition that causes severe cognitive delays, seizures, and impaired bodily coordination…and a surprisingly sunny disposition.

We believe in possible.

At UConn Health, we work to find the fastest, most effective treatments and cultivate the body’s ability to heal itself.

Injuries to the rotator cuff, the team of muscles and tendons that keep the arm bone firmly socketed in the shoulder, can cause the loss of ability to lift or move the arm. Even after traditional surgery, some rotator cuffs never heal. UConn surgeon Augustus D. Mazzocca and his team are using their patients’ own adult stem cells to regenerate tendon and muscle connections to the bone. Read More. Watch Video.

Possible is what happens when we refuse to give up.

Inspiration comes from all around us, especially those who refuse to give up.
