Dr. Kassam-Adams’ current research focuses on data sharing and data harmonization in traumatic stress research, and on the development and evaluation of tools that enable trauma-informed and family-centered care in pediatric health settings. Current National Institutes of Health-funded projects include an eHealth tool incorporating game-based screening of child symptoms and functioning, and online training for providers in non-pediatric emergency departments.
Dr. Corwin’s research focuses on pediatric concussion. He has a particular interest in improving the diagnosis and initial management of pediatric concussion, specifically using specialized examination techniques to identify shortly following the injury those children at highest risk for a prolonged recovery, as well as ways to maximize the diagnostic accuracy from the Emergency Department.
Todd Kilbaugh, MD, is an anesthesiologist and pediatric intensivist with the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, medical director of the ECMO Center, and director of the Resuscitation Science Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr.Grundmeier’s research focuses on maximizing the existing and future potential of electronic health records (EHRs) for clinical research and knowledge delivery, with an overarching goal of improving health and healthcare for children.
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. Shults works to develop statistical methods for longitudinal data that include semi-parametric approaches to account for subject/cluster level associations and maximum likelihood-based approaches for simulation and analysis of discrete longitudinal outcomes that may have overdispersion.
Dr. Eisch is a neuroscientist interested in how molecular, cellular, and circuit changes—particularly in the limbic system—influence motivated behavior and cognition. She is specifically interested in how neuroplasticity in the hippocampal dentate gyrus contributes to both normal and pathological function with relevance to depression and addiction.
