Researcher | Research Overview

One goal of Leonard Rappaport's work is to gain a better understanding of the effects of medical and surgical interventions on development and neurological status later in childhood. He seeks to use that information to improve developmental and behavioral outcome after infant cardiac surgery. 

His lab is also collaborating with Children's Genomics Center and MIT's Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences to better understand the etiology of developmental disorders. One of the goals of this work is to improve the methods of diagnosing and treating autism spectrum disorders. Rappaport and colleagues are also investigating the etiology and treatment of elimination disorders such as encopresis and enuresis.
