Current Research Studies Enrolling Participants | Overview


Boston Children’s Neurology researchers conduct a vast array of basic, translational and clinical studies directed at understanding and treating many of the disorders seen in our patient clinics. To participate in some of our studies, you must be under treatment in one of our clinical facilities, but there are many other opportunities for children of all ages to help our researchers and patients by serving as “control subjects”- that is, children who are not suffering from a specific condition - so that information about your health status can be compared to children with the disorder being studied.
