The Rusk Institute maintains an active research program, with projects in areas that include Musculoskeletal Medicine, Brain Injury, Stroke, Cancer Rehabilitation, Pain Management, and Physical Therapy techniques.  With the recent addition of Dr.Tamara Bushnik as Director of Research, NYU’s Department of Rehabilitation Medicine has made its research program a top priority. There are many opportunities for residents and students to get involved in research projects.  A research manual provides step-by-step guidance for house staff who want to pursue research.  Click here for more information about the clinical research projects at NYU Rusk, as well as some of the grant applications that have been recently submitted.
