Child Neurology Residency Training Program
Research Strengths and Opportunities
The research program in Neurology at Boston Children's Hospital is the largest and most accomplished in a pediatric facility in the world. Major research programs are carried out in both basic and clinical investigation and exciting new developments are taking place in the translational neuroscience arena. Our faculty frequently welcome residents for research electives during their residency, and many of our residents go on to complete postdoctoral research fellowships here after completing their clinical training.
Clifford Woolf, MD, BCH, PhD
Our division of Neurobiology, led for 13 years by Michael Greenberg, PhD, and now led by director Clifford Woolf, MD, BCH, PhD, is the central component of Boston Children's Hospital's multidisciplinary Program in Neurobiology.
Faculty in the Neurobiology Program at Boston Children's Hospital are investigating the mechanisms that regulate the key steps in nervous system development with the goal of applying this knowledge to the understanding of disorders of the nervous system that affect children. The program is also actively engaged in the training of the next generation of physicians and scientists in the areas of molecular and developmental neuroscience.
