Dr. Philip E. Stieg, second from right, helps open the new Regenerative Medicine Laboratories at Burke Medical Research Institute.

Dr. Philip Stieg, chairman of the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center, was honored to take part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Regenerative Medicine Laboratories at the Burke Medical Research Institute in White Plains on September 14, 2012. The mission of the new Regenerative Medicine Laboratories is to advance the science of neurological disorders and trauma and reduce disability from stroke, brain and spine injury, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and other conditions affecting the brain and spine.

The Burke Medical Research Institute conducts research in partnership with the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College, whose ties go back to Burke's founding in 1915. The new facility brings Burke's regenerative medicine research laboratories to more than 40,000 square feet.
