Together, we can renew hope for vision recovery

It is projected that those affected by retinal degenerative diseases will double by 2050—impacting everyday life for many. For retinal degenerative diseases, there is a demand to discover new ways to regain lost vision abilities. At the Burke Neurological Institute, we work across neurological conditions and abilitiesMotorPain & SensoryCognitive, and Visionto address symptoms as well as the cause.

A breakthrough for one person to restore ability could be a breakthrough for many, no matter how or why it originated.

The Visual Plasticity and Repair Laboratory focuses on sensory signal processing, particularly on how fundamental yet simple synaptic mechanisms underlie our perception of the world around us.” — Dr. Botir T. Sagdullaev

You have an important role to play in research

Participating in retinal degenerative diseases research takes courage and bravery. That is why our participants are at the center of discovery. We treat symptoms in carefully monitored clinical trials that apply the latest neuroscience, drug therapies, treatments and technological devices. We go beyond current medicine to test-drive innovations for prevention and recovery through neurological repair and neuro-restoration.
