Together, we can renew hope for SCI

Around the world, between 300,000 and 500,000 people are living with a spinal cord injury (SCI)—impacting everyday life for many. With spinal cord injury, there is a demand to discover new ways to regain lost motor skills as well as pain and sensory functions. At the Burke Neurological Institute, we work across neurological conditions and functions—MotorPain & SensoryCognitive, and Vision—to 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.

You have an important role to play in SCI research

Participating in spinal cord injury 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, minimally invasive surgery, treatments, and technological devices. We go beyond current medicine and rehabilitation to test-drive innovations for neurological repair and neuro-restoration.
