    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Heather Fullerton is pediatric vascular neurologist with an active clinical research program in childhood stroke. She is the Director of the UCSF Pediatric Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease Center, which she established in 2006, and Director of the UCSF Stroke Sciences Group, a group of stroke investigators first established by Dr. Clay Johnston, an adult stroke neurologist and epidemiologist. After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine in 1996, Dr. Fullerton came to UCSF for her pediatrics residency and child neurology fellowship, and then joined the Child Neurology faculty in July 2002. She completed a vascular neurology fellowship between 2002 and 2003, and a two-year Masters in Clinical Research at UCSF in 2005. In 2001, she began collaborating with Dr. Johnston at UCSF using administrative data to describe the incidence and demographics of childhood stroke. She then obtained a grant from the American Heart Association to perform a population-based study of childhood stroke within Kaiser Permanente, a large managed care organization. This study led to NIH funding for another retrospective Kaiser study on the role of infection in the pathogenesis of childhood stroke. She is now the PI on an NIH-funded prospective 25-center international study entitled, The Vascular effects of Infection in Pediatric Stroke (VIPS). This study will determine the association between common infections and a focal cerebral arteriopathy that is commonly observed in previously healthy children presenting with an ischemic stroke. It will also provide data on recurrence rates after a first childhood stroke. Her long-term goal is to develop clinical trials for primary and secondary stroke prevention in children.
