Children’s Center for Neurosciences Research (CCNR)
Ton de Grauw, MD, PhD, was recently named Chief of Neurosciences at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Director of the Division of Pediatric Neurology in the Department of Pediatrics at the Emory University School of Medicine. Bringing 30 years of experience to Children's, Dr. de Grauw has an international reputation as a leader in pediatric neurology. Dr. de Grauw has two patents, is the recipient of three National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants and is a leader in the study of childhood epilepsy, childhood headaches and other pediatric neurological disorders. As Chief of Neurosciences, Dr. de Grauw will oversee the delivery of specialized care for children with neurological disorders in Georgia through the Neurosciences Programs at Children's and the Emory-Children's Center, as well as foster the growth of pediatric neurosciences academic initiatives. Leading the development of Children's Center for Neurosciences Research is an important academic initiative.
To build momentum and support for the center, a Pediatric Neurosciences Research Meet and Greet was held in September 2011. Over 95 neurosciences researchers from multiple departments and institutions gathered to discover areas of mutual interest and define next steps to improve access to research approaches, techniques and technologies. Discussions included common neurosciences research approaches, such as neurophysiology, neuroimaging, neurogenetics, outcomes research and clinical trials.
