Welcome to The Brain Institute of America, LLC.

When I was a child I experienced the debilitating effects of a disease that eventually took the life of my father. Glioblastoma multiform is not only a deadly oncological malignancy, it is a debilitating disease that causes socio-economic hardship and emotional trauma amongst the family members and friends caring for that individual. I spent much of my career trying to understand the molecular underpinnings of cancer by studying non-coding RNAs. Often considered the dark matter of the genome, because so few knew much about these genes, non-coding RNA genes remain an unexplored resource of genetic information that has been linked to a number of diseases within the past decade and could very well explain the nature of glioblastoma multiform.

The Brain Institute of America was formed in 2017 with the goal of developing biomarkers for brain diseases and brain cancer. The mission is to develop effective biomarkers for those with chronic neurologic disorders as well as malignancies of the brain.

The Brain Institute of America is specifically focused on non-coding RNAs, a type of molecule that operates by regulating gene function. We have identified several noncoding RNAs that are highly expressed in brain tissue, and The Brain Institute of America is pursuing those entities for biomarker development.

The Brain Institute of America is a biomedical research company and operates within a shared laboratory setting in Groton, CT with access to state of the art equipment and facilities. Currently we are in Phase I development which is geared towards developing biomarkers for clinical use. In phase II, curated biomarkers will be commercialized into a product for clinical testing and use.

We thank everyone for their kind support in developing our programs!

The Institute in the news

The Brain Institute of America will be attending The Brain Institute of America Foundation’s – A dining for the vets event!

“As Founder of The Brain Institute of America Foundation, I have been funding advocacy and awareness campaigns in local communities on the topics of glioblastoma and brain-specific illnesses (BSIs) since May 2017. After the loss of my father to glioblastoma many years ago, I wanted to launch a research institution dedicated to solving the challenges associated with BSIs. The Foundation is a voice for those with BSIs such as Autism, PTSD, and Glioblastoma multiform (GBM) because these BSIs result in emotional and socio-economic hardships for many families.”
