About Neurosciences Research at Children’s
The neurosciences research team at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a collaborative effort between Emory University School of Medicine, Georgia Institute of Technology and Morehouse School of Medicine. We are dedicated to finding innovative therapies for children with brain and spine conditions.
Researchers are seeking preventive, diagnostic and wellness strategies for children with serious medical illnesses or challenges. Our studies focus on everything from brain tumors and traumatic injuries to the psychological and cognitive aspects of disease and injury—and much more.
