Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Trial for People With Organ Transplant Starts at Feinstein Institutes
In a new clinical trial looking at the efficacy of a third Moderna vaccine dose for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in people living with an organ (liver or kidney) transplant, The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research administered the extra vaccine to the first set of patients in the United States on September 20.
Hearing Restoration For The Deaf: Blackrock Neurotech Invests In Groundbreaking Auditory Nerve Implant With University Of Minnesota And MED-EL
Blackrock Neurotech, a leading provider of brain computer interface technology for human patients, has announced plans to invest in a novel auditory nerve implant device that restores hearing for the deaf.
In a preclinical study published in PNAS, scientists from Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research presented a new approach to treating diseases that involve inflammation and pain, like arthritis.
Feinstein Institutes Scientists Develop Long-Term Vagus Nerve Implant for Bioelectronic Medicine Research
Researchers at the Institute of Bioelectronic Medicine at The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research developed a long-term implant model for vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) in mice that successfully modulates heart rate and inflammatory proteins. The device and procedure may change the way preclinical bioelectronic medicine research is conducted and lead to alternative therapies for various chronic diseases, includ
Researchers at The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research , in collaboration with Columbia University, have identified a gene mutation that could result in schizophrenia, a chronic brain disorder that affects nearly one percent of the world’s population .
To study perinatal depression in women – before and after childbirth – and possible new treatments, The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research has been awarded more than $4 million in multi-year grants.
