The Burke Neurological Institute is one of the few institutions in the world focused on curing disability after patients have exhausted everything the health care system has to offer. To execute on this mission we have a growing base of Cornell faculty who focus on basic, translational and clinical research. These investigators collaborate internally and across the globe to discover, implement and transform clinical care.
Despite a nearly flat NIH budget in real dollars over the past two decades, BNI has grown its NIH base by more than 500 percent. The research efforts are seeded by an endowment, but there is a desperate need to grow our grant revenue and diversify our funding sources via commercialization and philanthropy. To meet the growing societal and institutional demands created by our mission to cure disability, BNI seeks to hire a dynamic, forward thinking, and experienced Chief Operating Officer who will work synergistically with the Executive Director to grow the scientific and clinical impact of BNI in a manner that minimizes financial exposure and institutional risk.
