Each summer the Burke Neurological Institute (BNI) welcomes promising undergraduate and high school students with bright futures in the field of neuroscience to its campus. Drs. Dianna E. Willis and Vibhu Sahni, co-directors of the BNI Education Program, are engaging these young neuroscientists and hoping to instill in them a love of scientific enquiry by establishing immersive on campus and remote educational programs for high school and college students.

Our mission is to translates groundbreaking research into clinical treatments that repair the brain and spinal cord to help people walk, speak, see, and remember again. Discovering scientific breakthroughs to restore abilities, can help reduce the sacrifices made by caregivers and renew hope for millions.
