Dr. Steven Miller, Trustee


Leadership-team-10-20182-c.jpgDr. Steven Miller is Head of the Division of Neurology and the Centre for Brain & Mental Health at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Toronto, and Senior Scientist in the Neuroscience & Mental Health Program at the Research Institute of SickKids. He holds the Bloorview Children’s Hospital Foundation Chair in Pediatric Neuroscience, and was previously a Canada Research Chair in Neonatal Neuroscience.

The focus of his research career has been on improving the clinical care of newborns at high-risk of brain injury including newborns born with congenital heart disease or born preterm. The use of advanced brain imaging offers tremendous potential to understand the mechanisms and timing of brain injury in high-risk newborns and fetuses. Findings from his research program inform new strategies to promote optimal brain development and neurodevelopmental outcome. Most recently, he co-directs Child-Bright, an innovative pan-Canadian network that aims to improve outcomes for children with brain-based developmental disabilities and their families through Canada's Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR).
