She is an Senior Associate Scientist at SickKids Research Institute and she is passionate about understanding why children have stroke, why some children do well after they have a stroke, and why some do not. She is pioneering an integrated clinical and multi-modal neuroimaging approach for the prediction of risk and outcome in children with stroke and cerebrovascular disorders. She also provides international leadership in pediatric stroke through the International Pediatric Stroke Study and the International Pediatric Stroke Organization.
Dr. Lehman is a pediatric Neurologist and Outpatient Medical Director of the Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Lukovits is Medical Director for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program at Dartmouth Health and Associate Professor of Neurology, Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth. He chose to specialize in the field of stroke because it has so many different clinical manifestations and it overlaps with many other areas of medicine. This allows him to be a member of an inter-disciplinary team that works diligently to provide the highest level of care for patients and families who are dealing with stroke, transient ischemic attack and other cerebrovascular conditions, including moyamoya disease, brain aneurysms, and vascular malformations.
Dr. Ogilvy is the Director of Endovascular and Operative Neurovascular Surgery at Beth Israel Lahey Health, BIDMC Brain Aneurysm Institute and BIDMC Moyamoya Center. He is also a Professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School and has a particular interest in adult MoyaMoya disease with clinical research evaluating the response in adults to bypass procedures and indirect revascularization.
Dr. Smith is a professor at Harvard Medical School and the R. Michael Scott endowed chair in neurosurgery at Boston Children’s Hospital. He serves as the co-director of the Cerebrovascular Surgery and Interventions Center, vice-chair of the #1-ranked department of pediatric neurosurgery in the US and leads a translational research laboratory in the Vascular Biology Program, focusing on development of non-invasive biomarkers and novel therapies for brain tumors and stroke. Dr. Smith heads one of the largest pediatric cerebrovascular programs in the country, and innovations from his research and clinical efforts have been incorporated in current national guidelines, with the goal of improving patient outcomes.
