Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Julie Eisengart is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and the Director of the Neurodevelopmental Program in Rare Disease. As a pediatric neuropsychologist, she specializes in rare neurodegenerative disorders of childhood. Her research focuses on the changing relationships between brain structure, biochemical abnormalities, and brain function in rare disease, with the goal of predicting outcomes and improving supportive planning. She has been heavily involved in examining outcomes of early diagnosis, newborn screening, and/or novel therapies for rare disease (i.e. all phases of clinical trials). Her research extends to defining and measuring aspects of disease that are under-represented in the clinical and research communities but are important and meaningful to patients and their families, such as neurobehavioral symptoms and the caregiver lived experience.
