Developing Novel Cures for Disabilities by Repairing the Nervous System

As we advance in improving patients’ quality of life from acute and chronic neurological conditions, a paradox of progress is that the prevalence of neurological disabilities continues to grow. Our institutional mission at the Burke Medical Research Institute is to innovate, develop and implement novel treatments to repair the brain and spinal cord and to cure neurological disabilities.

Our Research

Faculty Spotlight

Sagdullaev Lab focuses on sensory signal processing, particularly on how fundamental yet simple synaptic mechanisms underlie our perception of the world around us.
Focused on preclinical stroke studies, Cho Lab closely examines stroke pathology to address the gap between preclinical and clinical settings for translational medicine.
Willis Lab focuses on sensory neuron axonal biology, particularly on how local events within the axon are important in driving normal and pathological behaviors. 

How We Make an Impact

Our mission is one that not only propels bottom up approaches from molecular and cellular neuroscience toward the bedside, but also accelerates safe and ethical treatments that can be delivered to patients today. With more than 20 Cornell faculty and 100 employees working on a 50,000 square feet footprint, Burke Medical Research Institute's collective effort to repair the nervous system represents one of the largest in the world.
