The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is committed to collaboration with fellow neuroscientists in performing translational research. The infusion of drugs and growth factors hold great promise for neurologic diseases. In addition, new technology using stem cell biology for the treatment of many neurologic disorders such as stroke and brain tumors may provide therapeutic options for our patient population. Great new vistas exist for the treatment of neurologic disease and the department will play a leading role in the implementation of new treatment paradigms.

We maintain a number active research laboratories:



The Surgical Innovations Lab
In addition to our research laboratories, Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is home to the state-of-the-art Surgical Innovations Laboratory for Skull Base Microneurosurgery. Co-directed by Neurosurgeon-in-Chief Philip Stieg, M.D., Ph.D., and Antonio Bernardo, M.D., the Surgical Innovations Lab is an educational environment for developing and improving surgical approaches to the skull base. Surgeons and residents from around the world come to the Surgical Innovations Lab for hands-on and virtual training in advanced techniques.
