Very recently, the Prusky Lab has resumed limited clinical studies on children at Blythedale Children’s Hospital and adults at Burke Neurological Institute. “I am most proud of lab member’s ability to adapt to the peculiar circumstances they have found themselves in, and make outstanding progress.,” shared Dr. Glen Prusky.
NEI-funded research is aimed at objectively evaluating what people living with low vision due to cerebral (cortical) visual impairment (CVI) can and cannot see, especially in situations where a significant intellectual disability interferes with the ability to communicate or read an eye chart.
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!
