Neonatal Neurology (Recorded at Boston Children’s Hospital)
Janet Soul, MD
Janet Soul completed an internship and residency at Boston City Hospital and, subsequently, fellowships in neurology and neonatal neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital. She is an Associate Professor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School. Her research focus is on acquired brain injury in newborn infants, with particular interest in hypoxic-ischemic brain injury, involving a lack of oxygen and blood flow to the brain; the treatment of seizures in term newborns; and periventricular leukomalacia (injury to the white matter of the brain) intraventricular hemorrhage (bleeding into the ventricles of the brain) and hydrocephalus in preterm newborns.
Dr. Soul has been actively involved in the CNS throughout her training and academic career, including multiple “tours of duty” on the Scientific Program Planning Committee and as organizer and/or speaker of several seminars and symposia focused on newborn neurology. Fittingly, she received the 1998 Outstanding Junior Member Award in 1998 at the CNS Annual Meeting in Montreal, mere blocks away from where she received her medical school training at McGill University.
