Stroke
Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke. One out of six people will suffer a stroke in their lifetime. Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the U.S.

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

Cortes Lab's research studies are oriented to understand and enhance the underlying mechanisms of motor dysfunction and enhance motor recovery after spinal cord injury in humans.
Cave Lab studies mechanisms that regulate the proliferation and differentiation of adult neural stem cells to develop and treat of neurological disease or injury.
Friel Lab aims to improve hand function in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Our research focuses on the importance of motor activity in neurorehabilitation.

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.
