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.
