Congratulations to Cho Lab on their novel finding of regulating blood supply to limbs following a stroke to improves motor recovery. The research team’s recent manuscript is published in the Journal of Neuroscience and was chosen for SfN press promotion.

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

Faculty Spotlight

Preclinical Stroke Modeling Laboratory
Focused on preclinical stroke studies, Cho Lab closely examines stroke pathology to address the gap between preclinical and clinical settings for translational medicine.
Laboratory for Axonal and RNA Biology
Willis Lab focuses on sensory neuron axonal biology, particularly on how local events within the axon are important in driving normal and pathological behaviors. 
Circuit Repair Laboratory
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.

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

Join Our Research Registry

We are looking for participants, including healthy volunteers, to join our research registry. The purpose of the research registry database is to allow investigators within the Burke Neurological Institute to recruit participants for upcoming and current clinical trials.
