Coral Stredny | Professional History

After child neurology residency, Dr. Stredny completed fellowship training in epilepsy and neuro-immunology at Boston Children's Hospital before joining as faculty. Her clinical practice specializes in both pediatric epilepsy/seizures and autoimmune diseases of the brain and spinal cord. She is particularly interested in the overlap between these two specialties, when seizures are caused by an abnormal immune system and treated with immunotherapy. Her clinical research focuses on these disorders in which we think autoimmunity or inflammation may contribute to the generation of seizures, including Rasmussen encephalitis, febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES), autoimmune encephalitis, and Landau-Kleffner syndrome.

I am continually in awe of the resilience of my patients and their families. It is an honor to be a part of their team. Each day, I strive to do my best in optimizing my patients’ care and contributing to novel therapies for children with epilepsy and autoimmune disease in the future.
