Dr. Kassam-Adams’ current research focuses on data sharing and data harmonization in traumatic stress research, and on the development and evaluation of tools that enable trauma-informed and family-centered care in pediatric health settings. Current National Institutes of Health-funded projects include an eHealth tool incorporating game-based screening of child symptoms and functioning, and online training for providers in non-pediatric emergency departments.
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.
Todd Kilbaugh, MD, is an anesthesiologist and pediatric intensivist with the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, medical director of the ECMO Center, and director of the Resuscitation Science Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr. Fein conducts youth violence prevention research and has been the principal investigator (PI) or co-investigator of numerous federally funded projects addressing the youth violence epidemic through mixed-methods research, particularly community-based, participatory research (CBPR). He is currently the PI for a NICHD-funded study looking at the impact of a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) prevention program on assault-injured youth and their families.
Dr.Grundmeier’s research focuses on maximizing the existing and future potential of electronic health records (EHRs) for clinical research and knowledge delivery, with an overarching goal of improving health and healthcare for children.
Dr. Ichord participates in multiple research projects within Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and in collaboration with other stroke investigators. Dr. Ichord is especially interested in better understanding the effect of stroke on complex brain function, such as thinking and learning, and developing new strategies to promote recovery and rehabilitation.
Dr. Eisch is a neuroscientist interested in how molecular, cellular, and circuit changes—particularly in the limbic system—influence motivated behavior and cognition. She is specifically interested in how neuroplasticity in the hippocampal dentate gyrus contributes to both normal and pathological function with relevance to depression and addiction.
