Marcus and Morgan Luttrell enthrall audiences with a double-dose of wisdom, passion and work ethic
A military veteran with multiple deployments around the globe, Morgan Luttrell has made it his mission to assist veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) post-traumatic stress syndrome, chronic pain, and addiction in finding more effective treatments.
The neuroscientist has drawn largely from his own experience with a TBI.
Luttrell was aboard an army helicopter during a training exercise when their Black Hawk crashed; the force of the helicopter’s explosion caused Luttrell to break his back in numerous places and sustain a severe traumatic brain injury that caused him multiple cognitive issues for months.
While recovering from his own injury, Luttrell signed up to take part in a clinical trial, in which he underwent cognitive testing to learn how to improve his ability to process information. His journey through his own recovery led Luttrell to develop a keen interest in understanding the mechanics of the brain and in turn advance effective treatment protocols for other veterans that suffer from the side effects of TBI’s and other related injuries.
He completed his graduate degree in cognitive neuroscience and served as a Senior Advisor to the Secretary and Director for Translational Research and Applied Analytics in the Department of Energy.
Through his work combining the DOE’s technology with clinical data from the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies, Luttrell aims to use such partnerships to increase the quality of life for injured veterans in a shorter amount of time.
To maximize results, Luttrell has focused on principals from the military’s Mission Success Philosophy.
Luttrell’s dedication to teamwork and collaboration has established him as an influential force across several industries. Discipline honed from his military experience combined with his dedication to using machine learning and artificial intelligence to compute complex data has led to the breakdown of silos, faster more precise statistical outcomes, and the creation of cross-functional teams that have resulted in a greater impact for companies and causes.
