Dr. Williams work focuses primarily on cognitive and emotional recovery of children who have been medically compromised. With improved medical treatment and increased survival rates comes the need to better understand the challenges that patients face following a life threatening illness or injury. Dr. Williams utilizes neuropsychological assessments to understand the cognitive abilities of children who have been diagnosed with cancer, head injuries, genetic disorders and other medical conditions.
Long Term Effects On Recipients of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
This project allows for the systematic collection and analysis of long-term follow-up
clinical parameters in children who have received a stem cell transplant. The data collected
will assist in determining appropriate intervention and treatment plans for patients enrolled
on this study. In addition, future patients may benefit by having the ability to anticipate
problems and develop methods of prevention or early intervention.
