Bio

Brandon A. Zielinski, M.D., Ph.D. is an Arizona native whose early training brought him to Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ) and Georgetown University (Washington, DC). He attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. He joined the Division of Pediatric Neurology in 2010 after completing his neurology and pediatric neurology subspecialty training at the University of California San Francisco.

Dr. Zielinski’s clinical focus on acute care fills a 'neurohospitalist' role, and his specific clinical interests include pediatric neurocritical care, stroke, and neurovascular disease. He is also developing a functional MRI clinical service at PCMC in collaboration with the Department of Radiology.

Dr. Zielinski's research interests include both basic as well as clinical/translational science. He studies structure-function relationships in large-scale brain networks in children and young adults using advanced neuroimaging techniques including structural and functional MRI.

As director of the Developmental Network Neurobiology Lab, his clinical and translational research pursuits include autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as stroke, traumatic brain injury, and other acute neurologic illness. He collaborates with faculty in the Departments of Pediatrics, Neurology, Radiology, Psychiatry, Computer Science, Critical Care, Surgery, and Bioengineering, and is affiliated with the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute.

Dr. Zielinski is a past recipient of the Child Neurology Society's Outstanding Junior Member Award (2009), and his research is supported by the PCMC Foundation (Early Career Development Award, 2011; Integrated Science Award, 2012) and National Institutes of Health (K08 Mentored Career Development Award, NIMH, 2014). His scientific research has been published in leading journals including Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Neuron, Brain, and Journal of Neuroscience.
