NexGen EASY IVC Installation
Allentown Partnering with the National Institutes of Health
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
Allentown's recent partnership with NINDS began with the introduction of the NexGen system to NINDS staff. Their trial culminated with the purchase and installation of 153 NexGen units in the Porter Neuroscience Research Center...one of the world's largest and most renowned neuroscience research facilities. Allentown is very proud of our partnership with an institution as prestigious as NINDS.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts and supports research on brain and nervous system disorders. Created by the U.S. Congress in 1950, NINDS is one of the more than two dozen research institutes and centers that comprise the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH, located in Bethesda, Maryland, is an agency of the Public Health Service within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NINDS has occupied a central position in the world of neuroscience for more than 50 years.
The mission of NINDS is to seek fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system and to use that knowledge to reduce the burden of neurological disease. To accomplish this goal the NINDS supports and conducts basic, translational, and clinical research on the normal and diseased nervous system. The Institute also fosters the training of investigators in the basic and clinical neurosciences, and seeks better understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neurological disorders.
