Paola and Edmund share how the Hollis Lab is adapting to working at home and back in the lab to carry on their research mission during the pandemic. Paula expresses, “I am proud of this lab because it motivates its employees to do better, every day.”
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!
International Symposium on Neural Regeneration 2020
Dr. Yunuen Moreno-López and Dr. Ana Vivinetto, postdoctoral fellows at Burke Neurological Institute, have won travel grants to present posters at the 18th International Symposium on Neural Regeneration in Asilomar, California, held on January 26 to 30, 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!
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
Rebecca Taylor, a student trainee in the Hollis lab and rising sophomore at Georgetown University, has been awarded a diversity supplement from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the NIH.
Dr. Edmund Hollis and his lab are working to change this staggering statistic and give hope to those suffering from neuronal damage. By focusing on motor (movement) recovery as a whole, the Hollis lab is able to not only evaluate potential therapeutic strategies for spinal cord injury, but also for stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and neurodegenerative diseases.
Burke Neurological Institute invites interested and qualified undergraduate students to apply to our Summer Science Research Program. The 10-week program will run from June through August 2019. Learn more >
