Training Program and Research at INR

Dr. Edward Tobinick holds a medical degree from the University of California, San Diego Medical School, and completed residencies in internal medicine and dermatology at the University of California, Los Angeles. In 2001, Dr. Edward Tobinick founded the Institute of Neurological Recovery (INR). Over the course of a decade Dr. Tobinick and his colleagues have conducted research exploring new methods of treatment for neurological dysfunction.

Much of Dr. Tobinick’s work has involved the off-label use of etanercept, a biotechnology therapeutic that binds and inactivates the cytokine TNF. Dr. Tobinick has shared his findings at medical conferences in the United States and internationally. These include the 3rd International Restauracion Neurologica Conference in Havana, Cuba, and the 7th Annual Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Conference in New York.

In addition to facilitating the aforementioned research on etanercept, the INR conducts a physician training program. For more than four years, the INR physician training program has instructed doctors from the U.S. and abroad on INR’s off-label anti-TNF methods of treatment. Training sessions are held at INR’s Los Angeles, California, and Boca Raton, Florida, locations, and typically last one to two days. The program may be offered in languages other than English, by special arrangement, to facilitate understanding for all participants. Physicians are instructed in injection methods, clinical evaluation and response, dosing schedules, and relevant physiology and anatomy.
