Raphael Center for Neurorestoration
Innovation in Neuroscience to Help People Live their Best Lives
The name “Raphael” comes from an ancient word related to healing—and versions of this name can be found across cultures. It points us towards the idea that we are each a part of something bigger than ourselves.
For Neurorestoration this is embodied in our work, focused on positively impacting the lives of children and adults living with neurological conditions. Our goal is to innovate new treatments and practices that help restore a person’s ability to be the best they can be. Restoration, hence, is a kind of healing, and the name Raphael reminds us of the importance and awe-inspiring nature of this exploration.

Looking for Participants for a New Clinical Trial
The Nemours Children’s Health Neuroscience team is looking for participants for a new clinical trial in partnership with Thomas Jefferson University and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital's Center for Neurorestoration.
Qualifying participants should have weakness or paralysis in one or both arms and be near or over the age of ten.

This breakthrough research served as a proof of concept and necessary bridge for additional studies that will pave the way for a future in which people with permanent disability from stroke — and other types of nerve damage — can regain function. It exemplifies the countless ways Jefferson researchers are working to drive discovery and uncover new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat illness.
