The Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) welcomes Dr. Jeffrey Raskin, a pediatric neurosurgeon at Riley Children’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Indiana University to the network. Based in Indianapolis Indiana, Riley Children’s Hospital will expand the Midwest footprint of CPRN which will further accelerate research opportunities for improving outcomes for people with cerebral palsy (CP).
The addition of Dr. Raskin to the CPRN principal investigator team demonstrates an important avenue for growth for CPRN. “I learned about CPRN from a neurosurgical colleague from the University of Utah,” said Dr. Raskin. “Participating in multi-center, multi-discipline research supported by CPRN allows our Riley movement disorder program to influence and be influenced by collaborative research, ultimately helping people with CP.” The nature of CP treatment encourages clinician researchers from medical, surgical and therapeutic disciplines to seek research network infrastructure to facilitate their study interests.
