Our mission is to support innovative research, build educational platforms, and provide exceptional medical care to infants born with, or are at-risk for, neurological impairment. We are committed to improving brain development during pregnancy, birth, infancy and beyond.

Our Vision

The Infant Brain Center at MGHfC is a formal collaboration among diverse clinical specialists with an overarching vision that infant brain health can be shaped by cutting-edge research and neurotherapeutics along with daily interactions and sensory experiences in the hospital and home environment.

About Us

The center’s many specialists have experience and expertise in a broad range of fetal and infant neurological disorders. Our faculty and staff collaborate across many areas of neurology, perinatology, and neonatology to maximize each child’s greatest potential. Our providers work closely with families to facilitate a smooth transition home and plan appropriate follow-up care in our pediatric neurology clinics and Infant Developmental Follow-up clinic.

The goal of our multidisciplinary approach is to provide excellent medical care for patients with complex needs and create a family-friendly culture that emphasizes emotional support during this stressful time.
