Dr. Wang works on biomarker identification using multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging and homo- and hetero-nuclear spectroscopy techniques for pediatric disease research including tumors, iron overload, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, autism, mitochondrial, Gaucher’s, and Canavan’s diseases.
Dr. Roberts investigates brain-wave scanning with magnetoencephalography (MEG) and works to identify biomarkers for neuropsychiatric disorders like autism. Those biomarkers are for diagnosis, prognosis, stratification, and response monitoring as well as substrate identification for targeted therapy. Putting the "bio" into biomarkers is a major emphasis of Dr. Roberts' research, for which he uses advanced diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and edited spectroscopy.
Dr. Cielo conducted clinical and translational research related to the mechanisms and effects of obstructive sleep apnea in children, with a specific focus on infant populations, children with craniofacial conditions, and the use of MRI and other imaging modalities to understand structural contributors to obstructive sleep apnea in children.
Dr. Berman's research focuses on the coupling between brain structure and function and how abnormal development of the structure-function relationships contribute to the clinical symptoms of disorders such as autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Alexander-Bloch investigates normal brain development and the altered developmental trajectories that lead to mental illness. His multi-disciplinary research integrates brain imaging, genomics and clinical information.
Dr. Kim conducts clinical evaluations for infants and school-age children for studies exploring language and development. Her work at the Center for Autism Research focuses on developing and implementing behavioral protocols to support children who are participating in neuroimaging research studies.
Dr. Licht is the director of the Wolfson Family Laboratory for Clinical and Biomedical Optics. His research focuses on the development and use of novel noninvasive optical devices to probe cerebrovascular hemodynamics and physiology in vivo. These devices are used in clinical and preclinical studies to discover the timing and causes of brain injury during care.
Dr. Pamela Weiss is an experienced academic pediatric rheumatologist with advanced training in clinical epidemiology and a focus on early diagnosis, accurate phenotyping, and targeted treatment of children with juvenile arthritis. Her research consists of a mixture of prospective interventional, prospective observational and retrospective large database-driven work.
Dr. Reid's main project is RADIAL, an adaptive learning education platform that houses filtered knowledge around all subspecialties and delivers a customized curriculum to the end-user using deep learning algorithms.
