Caitlin K. Rollins
Caitlin K. Rollins is a fellow in behavioral neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital. She attended college at Harvard University and medical school at the University of PA. She remained in PA for pediatrics residency then moved to Boston Children’s Hospital for pediatric neurology training. She is a member of the Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program where she sees children with congenital heart defects or CHDs for neurological follow-up, focusing on issues like motor impairment, developmental delay, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and learning disabilities. Her research focuses on elucidating the biological bases of neurodevelopmental impairments in CHD survivors. Her research has evaluated the relationship between brain MRI findings and neuropsychological performance in adolescents with CHDs. Currently she is focused on understanding the influence of prenatal factors on brain development and CHDs. She hopes someday to minimize the neurological sequelae of being born with a CHD.
