Dr. Dlamini first joined SickKids in 2008 as a Clinical Research Fellow in the Stroke Program. Prior to this she obtained a Master’s in Pediatrics and her medical degree at the University College of London, England. She worked as a Neurologist at the Evelina Children’s Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, London, UK, specializing in stroke, neuromuscular diseases and complex neurofibromatosis prior to returning to SickKids in September 2014 as an Assistant Professor and Staff Physician in Neurology and Stroke. She completed her PhD examining the use of hypercapnic challenge BOLD MRI cerebrovascular reactivity studies for the prediction of stroke risk in children with arteriopathy. She is the Director of the Children’s Stroke Program and Education, co-Director of the Stroke Imaging Laboratory for Children and Director of the International Pediatric Stroke Study’s Operations and Data Core. Her clinical work and research aims to develop individualized models for the prediction of risk and outcome in children with, or at high risk of stroke so as to improve interventions and outcomes in this group, and identify strategies to promote neuroplasticity in the developing brain.
