The Boston Children's environment also provides the opportunity to interact with clinicians specializing in virtually every aspect of pediatric disease, as well as world-class researchers in related fields. Dr. Elizabeth Engle, MD, a Neurologist, combines genetic and molecular biological approaches to study congenital eye movement disorders. The Kreiman lab is interested in understanding how biological networks encode, process and transmit information. There are two main lines of research in the lab: (i) how circuits of neurons represent visual information and (ii) how gene expression is orchestrated, with a particular emphasis on gene expression in the nervous system. The lab uses a combination of mathematical, computational and experimental tools.
Our department has affiliations with leading subspecialists in pediatric ophthalmology, including Shizuo Mukai, MD, who has an interest in pediatric retina, and Dr. Hoguet, who specializes in both adult and childhood glaucomas. Ronald Hansen, PhD, works closely with Dr. Fulton evaluating pediatric electrophysiology. Our support staff includes four orthoptists and three ophthalmic technicians.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
