SCI 2020: Launching a Decade for Disruption in Spinal Cord Injury Research Conference

Shout out to Zhong, Willis, Hollis and Sahni Labs of Burke Neurological Institute who participated in the SCI 2020: Launching a Decade for Disruption in Spinal Cord Injury Research Conference sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NICHD/NCMRR).

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

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy
8,000 to 10,000 babies and infants are diagnosed per year.

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

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.
