Dr. Anderson’s research interests focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the development of the mammalian forebrain. In his research on the development of the cerebral cortex, he is particularly interested in understanding the molecular underpinnings behind the fate determination and axon targeting of subclasses of GABAergic interneurons implicated in the neuropathology of schizophrenia.
Dr. Foster’s current research focuses on immunotherapy for pediatric solid and brain tumors. Specifically she is investigating chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy for neuroblastoma, high-grade gliomas, medulloblastomas, diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas, and other brain tumors. The goals of her research are to develop pre-clinical CAR T cells for translation into clinical trials to help these devastating tumors.
Dr. Tunç is a computational scientist investigating the application of machine learning and statistical data analysis in various domains such as digital phenotyping, nature of psychopathology, and neuroimaging. He participates in studies using normative, developmental, and clinical samples to parse heterogeneity in psychiatric disorders by developing novel computational techniques.
Dr. Goldberg's research program focuses on investigating cerebral cortical circuit function and dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders. Using a variety of research techniques, Dr. Goldberg has a specific research interest in the workings of neuron subtype called GABAergic inhibitory interneuron and the role of interneuron dysfunction in disease.
Dr. Juhi Pandey is a pediatric neuropsychologist in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and a scientist in the Center for Autism Research at CHOP. Her research focuses on autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Timko is a psychologist and researcher focused on understanding the development and maintenance of eating disorders in adolescents. Currently, her interest is in the neurobiology of anorexia, the role of neurocognition in eating disorder maintenance, sex differences in eating disorders, and the development of new treatments for youth with eating disorders.
Dr. Corwin’s research focuses on pediatric concussion. He has a particular interest in improving the diagnosis and initial management of pediatric concussion, specifically using specialized examination techniques to identify shortly following the injury those children at highest risk for a prolonged recovery, as well as ways to maximize the diagnostic accuracy from the Emergency Department.
