Pediatric Stroke Research Publications

Pediatric Stroke Program physicians are actively involved in research that focuses on many aspects of pediatric stroke care, including accurate and early diagnosis, new treatments, the relationship between stroke and congenital heart disease, and the effect of stroke on complex brain function, such as thinking and learning.
