Research

Researchers at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore have been setting trends in medicine for years through a commitment to scientific research and clinical trials.

Programs like the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center conduct a broad range of investigations that advance our understanding of epilepsy and other neurological disorders.

From bench to bedside, our investigative spectrum pairs technology with a holistic patient-focused approach to better understand the role that genetics play in epilepsy, examine the pathophysiology of seizures, and evaluate new treatments for patients with seizures. Our pediatric neurology research sets trends that advance treatment options.
