The Division of Child Neurology at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is at the frontier of medical research. Over the past decade, neurological science has made major discoveries in understanding the genetic, molecular, cellular and organizational basis for diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. These advances have improved our ability to diagnose and treat many previously incurable disorders of the nervous system.
Children’s Hospital’s neurologists are leaders in research. Faculty members of the Division of Child Neurology bring into the Pittsburgh biomedical community in excess of $1 million in federal corporate and foundation research funding each year. Their research studies range from determining the best seizure medications to use for particular epilepsies to creating targeted viruses to treat cancer.
Basic science and clinical investigations directly related to our mission are an integrated component of the division.
Children’s neurologists are equally at home and accomplished in the classroom. All teach at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Beyond the lecture hall and conference room, they also are career mentors for high school, undergraduate and medical students, residents and fellows from all over the country. They have also hosted international colleagues in observerships in child neurology.
