The Mai Family Foundation grants funding for neurotechnology to advance neurorehabilitation for children.

The Burke-Blythedale team believes the first step toward discovering effective therapies for children with neurological injuries and impairments is to be able to track, measure and analyze both brain behavior and brain function with far greater accuracy and precision than the current status quo.

The science hope demands

 

We are a research institute dedicated to finding cures for chronic neurological disabilities. We translate groundbreaking research into clinical treatments so that people can see, talk, and walk again.

The longing for hope

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 Role & Cause

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury
52% are considered paraplegic. 47% are considered quadriplegic.

The science hope demands

Hope demands brilliant science, and every day we translate groundbreaking research into promising neurological treatments. We put patients at the center of discovery by combining rigorous science and specialized clinics.

Our Research

Faculty Spotlight

Paralysis is the leading cause of disability worldwide for which there are no FDA approved therapies available. Curing neurological disability to restore function ultimately requires either repairing damaged neural circuitry or 

Hollis Lab studies the reorganization of neural circuits during learning and rehabilitation with a focus on the function of cortical motor networks after spinal cord injury.
Cave Lab studies mechanisms that regulate the proliferation and differentiation of adult neural stem cells to develop and treat of neurological disease or injury.
