Clinical Research
Our priority is the safety of our research participants and clinical research staff. We will continue to monitor research operations and maintain close communications with research participants that are currently enrolled in active research studies. We will continue to recruit interested participants in studies in order to continue our efforts in advancing knowledge and care for people with complex neuro-inflammatory illnesses.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will notify research participants and keep them informed when we will begin appointments for onsite visits. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented crisis and would like to thank you for your continued support and research participation.

The Institute's E.M. Papper Laboratory Of Clinical Immunology remains open and will proceed with the continuity of our research and laboratory work.

With the onset of COVID-19, the INIM Clinic has remained open. It has changed to provide ongoing patient care by phone in order to protect the patients from exposure to COVID-19. If you have an appointment with us this week, you have already been contacted; we will continue to contact our scheduled patients for confirmation of phone consultations.  We look forward to implementing Telehealth services in the near future, and will provide our patients this option, once it is implemented. 


Please continue to visit our website and check out our social media sites for ongoing updates.

Mission Statement

The Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine at Nova Southeastern University strives to advance knowledge and care for people with complex neuro-inflammatory illnesses through the integration of research, clinical care and education.

Current research focus at the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine at Nova Southeastern University includes myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Gulf War illness (GWI), fibromyalgia, autism, Lyme disease, HIV/AIDS and other chronic complex medical illnesses. Investigators, clinicians and educators are committed to applying scientific advances to promote efficiency, enhance patient care and improve clinical utility. This advancement is done through clinical, laboratory, computational and integrative cardiovascular immunological research, all of which are conducted at the institute by renowned researchers in their respective fields.

Environmental​ ​Medicine​ ​Fellowship​

We are proud to announce a new 2-year Fellowship program in Environmental Medicine. This program is available to candidates who have completed a 3-year program in Internal Medicine. Eligible candidates should have a strong interest in Environmental Medicine and Immunology.

Upon successful completion of the program, candidates will be Board eligible in Environmental Medicine and, therefore, able to sit for board certification examinations in Environmental Medicine. The program will be based at our Fort Lauderdale and Kendall Campus offices and will allow 6 months of environmental medicine rotations at locations throughout the United States.

The Fellowship will teach and provide experience for the physician within the context of the diagnosis and care of the environmentally ill patient. For more details, view the Core Curriculum of Environmental Medicine.

If interested, please send your CV/resume to Dr. Irma Rey.
