Recommend initiatives that will increase BNI’s visibility and engagement with patients, caregivers and donors.

**This project will be done virtually.**

Nonprofit: Burke Neurological Institute

Burke Neurological Institute is a nonprofit leading scientific research institute devoted to advancing the study of neurological diseases and injuries, pioneering novel rehabilitation therapies and developing innovative clinical programs and clinics. Working synergistically with its academic affiliate Weill Cornell Medicine, the Institute is comprised of several neurological disease, injury and functional recovery focused research laboratories. BNI brings hope to those living with neurological disabilities caused by a host of afflictions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and Alzheimer’s disease. Our world-class neuroscience helps people see, remember, talk, write, and walk again. BNI transforms groundbreaking research into promising neurological treatments. BNI’s specialized clinics revolutionize the therapeutic pipeline—speeding up the process of turning insights from the lab into life-changing results for patients with neurological impairments.

Project: Market Awareness

Successful patient recruitment for clinical trials is essential for testing cutting edge therapeutics and devices to repair the nervous system and curing chronic neurological diseases. Without robust patient numbers, potential cures cannot move out of the pipeline and into patients and there are over 600 impairments and disabilities related to the nervous system. Sign up for this brainstorming to help:

  • Identify strategies to increase BNI’s visibility in the neurological patient community
  • Identify strategies to increase BNI’s visibility with new, significant donors
