Coronavirus Update for Clinical Programs & Trials

To protect the health of the people we serve, Burke Neurological Institute has temporarily paused patient enrollment in clinical trials, but the science, planning and collaborations are moving rapidly for our clinical research and programs. Science across the Institute is prospering as we slowly reopen the Institute and work remotely analyzing data, writing papers, and applying for new funding sources. As we practice social distancing, we assure you: we are with you. Carrying out our mission and serving people with chronic neurological challenges is our number one priority.

The science behind hope

Hope demands brilliant science, and every day we translate groundbreaking research into promising neurological treatments. We put patients at the center of discovery by combining rigorous science with specialized programs. And you have an important role to play.

Clinical Trials

At the Burke Neurological Institute clinical trials take place in our innovative specialized programs and clinical laboratories. As cutting-edge basic and translational research progresses from the laboratory to specialized programs and clinical settings, you have an important role to play. By participating in clinical trials, you are helping to advance clinical treatments and you may gain access to ground breaking treatments before they are widely available.
