As a nonprofit, independent neuro-repair and research arm of Weill Cornell Medicine, we leverage our academic affiliate connection and collaborate with the best neurology experts worldwide to discover ways to repair the brain and spinal cord. We develop treatments for neurological conditions aimed to restore functions and abilities. We bring hope to people living with neurological disabilities caused by stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other life-long neurological conditions.
Living with a neurological condition impacts everyday life for millions. Hope begins to fade as millions with life-long neurological conditions wait for medical treatments and a cure.
At Burke Neurological Institute we think the wait has been long enough. We work across neurological conditions to share innovations and drive discovery for treatments in four major functional areas: motor, pain & sensory, cognitive and vision.
Hope — it’s what inspires clinical trial participants to join us in the discovery of new treatments and propels the drive to reach for a cure. Our dramatically different and synergistic approach brings the best scientific ideas forward and moves individuals living with life-long neurological conditions closer to new treatments and a cure every day. At Burke Neurological Institute we share our research discoveries worldwide. A breakthrough for one person to restore ability could be a breakthrough for millions.
