Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a $5 million grant that will allow NeuroCuresNY, Inc. to conduct a two-year demonstration of its unique clinical trial network and process for testing drugs to treat disability due to neurological impairment. NCNY, a not-for-profit initiative formed by Burke Neurological Institute, the University of Rochester and the Wadsworth Center to conduct clinical trials of drugs for chronic neurological impairment and disability, aims to reduce the time and cost of drug development for patients disabled from stroke who have exhausted everything that the health care system currently offers. The grant is part of New York State's $620 million Life Science Initiative to spur the growth of a world-class life science research cluster in New York, as well as expand the state's ability to commercialize this research and grow the economy.
