The science hope demands

More people than ever are living with chronic neurological issues caused by strokes, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Their prospect for recovery too often feels hopeless, as they wait for major breakthroughs in treatments and cures. With brilliant and compassionate science that leads to life-changing cures, we can change this.

Our Research

Faculty Spotlight

Willis Lab focuses on sensory neuron axonal biology, particularly on how local events within the axon are important in driving normal and pathological behaviors. 
Carmel Lab studies recovery of motor function after injury to the central nervous system focusing on the corticospinal system, which connects motor cortex to the spinal cord.
Focused on preclinical stroke studies, Cho Lab closely examines stroke pathology to address the gap between preclinical and clinical settings for translational medicine.

We renew hope

Burke Neurological Institute brings hope to those living with neurological disabilities.
We help people to see, remember, talk, write, and walk again.
