The 2015 Pediatric Neurology Update is the 25th Annual Symposium coordinated by the Center for Neuroscience and Behavioral Medicine at Children’s National. Over the past 25 years, there has been a tremendous transition in pediatric neurologic care, with a greater understanding of the molecular drivers of pediatric neurologic diseases. This transition in understanding has led to remarkable advances in therapeutic and, most recently, precision molecularly targeted therapies; this year’s update will focus on these transitions and how they impact diagnosis, treatment, and outcome.
