Dr. Ichord participates in multiple research projects within Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and in collaboration with other stroke investigators. Dr. Ichord is especially interested in better understanding the effect of stroke on complex brain function, such as thinking and learning, and developing new strategies to promote recovery and rehabilitation.
Dr. Shih studies the metabolic interplay between cell types within the neurovascular unit during stroke to develop effective, novel mitochondrial-directed therapeutics to improve post-stroke disability. She works with small and large animal models of childhood arterial ischemic stroke.
Dr. Beslow works on the development of measurement and outcome prediction tools for pediatric hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. She recently led a 61-center study carried out in 26 countries that evaluated the frequency of ischemic stroke among pediatric patients with SARS-CoV-2.
Dr. White develops novel optical functional neuroimaging systems and algorithms to better understand pediatric neuronal injury. His research includes optical intrinsic signal imaging, diffuse optical tomography, and resting-state functional connectivity.
Dr. Krivitzky's research focuses on cognitive, behavioral, and social outcomes in pediatric stroke and related vascular conditions. She also has an interest in studying outcomes in children and adults with inborn errors of metabolism.
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. Prosser's research focuses are the development and rehabilitation of movement in children, particularly those with neurological impairments. This includes the investigation of the development of impaired movement, the study of novel motor rehabilitation interventions in children, and the interaction between the processes of neuroplasticity and neuromaturation in sensorimotor systems.
Dr. Walshe's research uses cognitive, neuropsychological, and neuroscientific techniques to understand higher-level cognitive control over the complex and high-risk motor task of driving. In particular, Dr. Walshe investigates how cognitive development in young drivers may impact driver safety.
