mPEAK was a collaboration between UCSD's Center for Mindfulness, the School of Medicine, and the coaches of the 2014 US Olympic BMX Cycling Team. The pilot research study investigated changes in neural processing after mindfulness training in elite athletes. The training has since been offered to the US Department of Homeland Security, Navy Special Warfare (SEALS), and several other Olympic teams.
