Payal B. Patel

Dr. Patelís research integrates pediatric neurology with epidemiologic research methods to evaluate predictors of neurologic seqeulae in children following perinatally acquired central nervous system (CNS) infections. Patel currently addresses questions related to prognosis and prevention of neurologic seqeulae following perinatally acquired HIV. Investigations include immunologic and neuroimaging markers of CNS injury as prognostic tools for identifying adults who are at risk for cognitive co-morbidities related to perinatal HIV and evaluations of the mechanisms behind CNS injury experienced by cognitively impaired survivors of perinatal HIV. Characterizing the biologic underpinnings of cognitive resilience can inform potential neuroprotective targets in adults with perinatal HIV.
