Introduction to the Marmarou Lecture

Gregory W.J. Hawryluk, MD, PhD, FRCSC, FAANS (Canada)

Ann-Christine Duhaime, MD, FAANS, is director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital and is the Nicholas T. Zervas professor of neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School. Her clinical practice includes all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery, with a focus on trauma and functional neurosurgery. Her academic focus has included design and use of anthropomorphic and large animal models to study mechanisms, pathophysiology, imaging and treatment of injury in the immature brain. She is the director of the Pediatric Neurosurgery Research Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, which uses translational models to study injuries occurring in infants and young children, including those seen most commonly in child abuse. She also is the principal or co-investigator in a number of clinical research projects and trials studying neurologic assessment tools, imaging and outcomes after injuries early in life. She has been involved extensively in the National Institutes of Health-sponsored efforts in traumatic brain injury, including helping to develop the NIH Common Data Elements for Traumatic Brain Injury Research, focusing on neuroimaging, pediatric clinical care and preclinical common data terminology. She is site principal investigator and pediatric core leader for TRACK TBI, a large NIH-funded national study of children and adults with head injuries, and is an investigator in post-traumatic epilepsy for the CURE Foundation.

Dr. Duhaime recently spent a year as a Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where she studied the neurobiology of reward circuitry and its relevance to pro-environmental behavior and is leading a team to design a prototype advanced “green” biophilic pediatric hospital at Massachusetts General.
