Mayo Clinic Florida, Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit

The Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit at Mayo Clinic Florida is a highly academically productive program, focusing on discoveries that change the course of patient management. Seamlessly integrating the three shields of Mayo Clinic —patient care, research, and education — our multidisciplinary program within the department of neurology includes neurocritical care, neurosurgery, epilepsy and EEG, basic neuroscience, neuroradiology, and neuro-anesthesia. The labs of Dr. W. David Freeman and Dr. Jason Siegel combine these groups with teams of researchers to answer clinically significant questions about managing complex, acute neurological disease in the area of neurapheresis cerebrospinal fluid filtration therapy, Drs. Freeman and Siegel are involved in numerous studies to identify cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers and promotion of a lumbar drain simulation used for teaching and practice.

Duke University Medical Center/Duke Neurosurgery

Duke University Medical Center is one of the premier academic medical centers in the United States. Dr. Nandan Lad, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Duke, leads the Consortium’s efforts to advance Neurapheresis Therapy into human clinical research, and ultimately into the clinic for multiple indications. Duke Neurosurgery maintains an active service with 25 clinical neurosurgeons and a full team of advanced practice providers to meet the needs of adult and pediatric patients in need of neurosurgical care. In keeping with the vision of Duke Health, they are dedicated to the trifold mission of advancing patient care, physician training, and groundbreaking research. The Duke neurosurgical service is committed to the quest for the best possible treatment of diseases that affect the nervous system. Working as a team with several other medical specialties, they advise the patient as to the appropriate options for diagnosis and treatment for their conditions.
Together, Minnetronix Neuro and Duke University Medical Center are committed to providing compassionate care and to shepherding the most promising treatments from the laboratory to the clinic for previously incurable conditions.

Neurophysiological Imaging and Modeling Laboratory (NIML)

The Neurophysiological Imaging and Modeling Laboratory (NIML) at The University of Idaho Department of Biological Engineering is led by Bryn Martin. We conduct clinical translational research to investigate the pathophysiology of central nervous system (CNS) disorders and develop related medical technologies. The mission of the NIML is to become an internationally recognized leader in the study of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system in relation to neurological disorders and to contribute to the advancement of CSF related technologies through active transfer of our know-how to the clinic and to the medical technology sector. Our multidisciplinary team and collaborators includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, engineers, artists, biologists and medical device manufacturers.

Tisch MS Research Center of New York

The Tisch Multiple Sclerosis Research Center of New York (Tisch MSRCNY) was formally launched in 2006 and is the largest independent MS center in the world. The research center conducts groundbreaking investigations into the cause of MS, biomarker research aimed at developing precise diagnostic and predictive tools to bring the disease under the control of treating neurologists, and novel regenerative strategies for repairing the damage done by the disease in patients who are unresponsive to standard treatments. In 2012 with the generous assistance of our benefactors we initiated a further expansion to an area encompassing approximately 80,000 square feet to house the latest in research equipment and technology designed to accelerate the pace of MS research and treatment. The close relationship of the research center and the clinical practice, International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice (IMSMP), speeds the translation of basic science into clinical practice and helps to test new treatments for MS. Our unity of purpose, and an ease of communication between the clinical and research staff of over 80 individuals creates a unique environment that accelerates the pace of scientific discovery and advancement at minimum cost and with minimal bureaucratic constraints.
