Coronavirus Update

To protect the health of the people we serve, Burke Neurological Institute has temporarily paused student applications and enrollment in Summer Science Research Program and Student Volunteer opportunities. At this time, Burke Neurological Institute is only offering lessons to high school students for the Introduction to Neuroscience via online webinars. Science across the Institute is prospering as we slowly reopen the Institute and work remotely analyzing data, writing papers, and applying for new funding sources. As we practice social distancing, we assure you: we are with you.
