Summer Science 2019

Burke Neurological Institute invites interested and qualified undergraduate students to apply to our Summer Science Research Program. The 10-week program will run from June through August 2019.

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.
