Stroke affects over 795,000 people in the U.S. alone each year, that is one person every 40 seconds. Dr. Tomoko Kitago, lab director of the Human Motor Recovery Laboratory at the Burke Neurological Institute, talks about stroke awareness, treatments and the importance of clinical trials.
At the Burke Neurological Institute, we are devoted to the study of stroke. From laboratory investigations to clinical research and beyond, neuroscientists are focused on advancing prevention, medical treatments, state-of-the-art rehabilitation therapies, and wellness strategies for stroke. We are carrying on with our mission to push the boundaries of stroke research.
Burke Neurological Institute is pleased to share our highlights and impacts achieved during 2019. Together, we renew hope to those living with neurological disabilities by helping people to see, remember, talk, write, and walk again. Enjoy these accomplishments from 2019 as we look forward to a bright 2020!
Burke Neurological Institute is very grateful to our Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, patients, families, and friends. Thank you for bringing our mission to life and for supporting our efforts to advance the Science that Hope Demands!
