CPF Executive Director Rachel Byrne and Jocelyn Cohen, Vice President of Communications and Engagement at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation discuss collaboration in research.
“The earlier we can detect and the earlier we can intervene, the better the outcomes for everyone with CP. One of the really exciting research projects that we are funding right now is near infrared spectroscopy. It is a project by Dr. Zach Vesoulis at Washington University in St. Louis. It is a way with a sticker on a baby in the NICU's scalp, to measure brain oxygen levels in the first 72 hours of life.”
