About the Friedman Brain Institute
The Friedman Brain Institute is an interdisciplinary clinical and research hub for defining the mechanisms behind brain and spinal cord disorders and for translating those findings into preventative or restorative interventions. The Institute represents a large multidisciplinary effort involving numerous basic science and clinical departments on campus. Located in New York City, the Institute focuses on neural injury and repair, cognitive function and neuropsychiatry. By taking advantage of the growing body of knowledge about brain and spinal cord disorders, we are poised to drive revolutionary advances in the clinic by developing more effective diagnostic tests, treatments and preventions.
