News: Research & Innovation

With one of the most experienced teams in the nation, Nicklaus Children’s Brain Institute is not only pioneering new treatments and procedures, but also leading the way in early diagnostics and prevention.
 
We are hastening the detection of potentially fatal brain anomalies through genetic screening. We are pioneering minimally invasive surgery for brain tumors, hydrocephalus and epilepsy, with incisions smaller than the height of the print on this page. We are developing personalized brain wellness strategies and leveraging new technologies to enhance the patient experience, such as our innovative NeuroHome™ concept, which will provide virtual access to ongoing care and support in the home and school via telehealth.
 
From treatment for traumatic brain injuries to deep brain stimulation for movement disorders to clinical trials for sleep disorders – Nicklaus Children’s Brain Institute has evolved into one of the largest and most advanced pediatric neurology and neurosurgery programs in the nation.
