Brain development as related to medical illness and childhood cancer


W278 GH

My research is about brain development in the context of medical illness, particularly childhood cancer. Key neuroscience tools I use include: neuroimaging, neuropsychological testing and experimental cognitive neuroscience tasks. I recently expanded my research to include neurochemical markers of brain damage (e.g., neurofilament light, tau), which are essayed using ultrasensitive single molecule array (Simoa) technology.
