Rainbow Neurologic Center Research

Current Clinical Trials

The Rainbow Neurological Center leads in the field of research related to fetal and neonatal neurology, neuro-intensive care and pediatric epilepsy. Center physicians and scientists are
involved in multiple NIH-funded research projects including:

  • Designing new technologies for bedside continuous brain monitoring in the intensive care setting for the diagnosis and assessment of children at high risk for neurological sequelae after brain disorders.
  • Drug and surgical outcomes research for pediatric epilepsy.
  • Developmental care in the neonatal nursery and the impact of specific nursing care practices on the development of the brain. These studies culminate in evaluation for development neural plasticity concentrating primarily on high-risk preterm populations.
