Contact the Pediatric Neuro-immunology Program

At Boston Children’s Hospital, we’re known for our science-driven approach and our intense culture of innovation—a philosophy that lets us push the boundaries of pediatric care.

Our patients benefit from our Pediatric Neuro-immunology Program expertise: We are a main referral center for pediatric encephalitis in New England. We also have strong ties to the small network of physicians and researchers all over the country who are working to better understand, diagnose and treat this extremely rare condition.

The goal of the Department of Neurology is to develop programmatic areas of relevance to the developing brain and to integrate clinical and basic neuroscience. Research areas within our department include clinical departments:

  • Developmental Neurophysiology Laboratory (through the Epilepsy Center and Clinical Neurophysiology)
  • Electromyography (EMG) Laboratory
  • Neuromuscular Center
  • Center for Pediatric Epilepsy Research (through the Epilepsy Center and Clinical Neurophysiology)


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.”
