Speakers

Shenandoah "Dody" Robinson, MD
@Johns Hopkins University
Dr. Shenandoah "Dody" Robinson is a nationally recognized expert in the treatment of pediatric epilepsy, spasticity and hydrocephalus. Her research focuses on clarifying how early insults to the developing brain lead to deficits, such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and how to mitigate these deficits with neurorestorative agents. She has built on using these neuro-immunomodulatory cocktails to prevent various types of acquired hydrocephalus. As a prolific researcher and award-winning teacher, she has written dozens of peer-reviewed professional journal articles and more than 15 book chapters, and she has mentored numerous pediatric neurosurgery trainees. Dr. Robinson serves on the Executive Councils of the American Society of Pediatric Surgeons (ASPN) and the American Academy of Neurological Surgery. She is also a Director of the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery, and previously served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics.
Lauren Jantzie, PhD
@Johns Hopkins University
Dr. Jantzie is an Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University. Her lab investigates the pathophysiology of encephalopathy of prematurity, and pediatric brain injury common to infants and toddlers. Dr. Jantzie is dedicated to understanding disease processes in the developing brain as a means to identifying new therapeutic strategies and treatment targets for perinatal brain injury. Her lab studies neural substrates of cognition and executive function, inhibitory circuit formation, the role of an abnormal intrauterine environment on brain development, neural-immune signaling and mechanisms of neurorepair. Using a diverse array of clinically relevant techniques such as MRI, cognitive assessment, and biomarker discovery, combined with traditional molecular and cellular biology, the Jantzie lab is on the front lines of translational pediatric neuroscience.
