Holland Bloorview: A Global Player in Kids Rehabilitation
Dr. Tomas Paus, Director of Population Neuroscience and Developmental Neuroimaging Program at Holland Blooview Hospital joins eHealth Radio and the Children's Health & Health News Channels to discuss life-changing research findings that will impact the lives of kids, youth, and families across the globe.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Tomas Paus discuss the following:
Dr. Tomas Paus, Director of Population Neuroscience and Developmental Neuroimaging Program, Holland Blooview Hospital is a distinguished senior scientist, and director of Population Neuroscience & Developmental Neuroimaging for Holland Bloorview’s research institute (the Bloorview Research Institute). This critical new role supports Holland Bloorview as the future home of Ontario’s first, fully-accessible child-friendly research MRI and further establishes itself as a premier international center for the study of child and youth brains.
Over the past 15 years, Paus’ work has focused on brain maturation, particularly in adolescence. His interest in population neuroscience – the “big data” approach to studying how brain structure and function is shaped by the interaction of genes and our environment – is vital to the Bloorview Research Institute’s growth strategy, which includes state-of-the-art discovery hubs in machine learning and artificial intelligence, imaging, and neuromodulation.
The Bloorview Research Institute is the research arm of Holland Bloorview, an academic health science center fully affiliated with the University of Toronto.
