Current Public-Health Related Activities

Dr. McGuire is a Child Neurologist and Epidemiologist whose clinical practice and research are dedicated to improving the care of both children with infections of the nervous system, and to General Neurology. She co-founded the Neurologic Infections clinic at CHOP in 2016 with colleagues in Infectious Disease. There, they provide expert care for children affected by infections of the nervous system that is integrated into a clinical and epidemiologic research program aimed at helping better understand and treat these complicated disorders. In addition, she is supported by the National Institutes of Health to study the cognitive and neuroimaging features of HIV in adolescents and young adults, with the goal of later understanding the pathophysiologic basis of these changes in order to develop treatment and prevention strategies.
