A Message from Our Chairman of the Board of Directors

The search to find cures for chronic neurological disabilities and the transforming of groundbreaking research into clinical treatments so that people can see, talk, and walk again is the noblest of missions. The Burke Neurological Institute (BNI) and its renowned research faculty and staff have embraced this difficult mission by providing patients who have been given little hope of improvement by their doctors the optimism that a cure may be possible.  

The BNI Board of Directors, through the diverse background of its members, is committed to provide industry guidance and governance to help the Institute achieve these challenging goals.  We take very seriously the Institute’s aspirational goal of providing “the science hope demands”.

We also encourage all those who believe as strongly as we do in the Institute’s mission to change lives and become a donor to help support this pioneering research reach those most in need.

Warmest regards,

Robert J. Baldoni
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Burke Neurological Institute
