Laura Gilbert, DO, MBA

I am a fourth-year pediatric neurology resident and one of the incoming administrative chief residents at Washington University in St. Louis. I attended Northwestern University for my undergraduate education and worked as a clinical research coordinator after graduation at the Feinberg School of Medicine prior to obtaining a dual degree DO/MBA in Healthcare Administration from Kansas City University/Rockhurst University.   

Fun fact: I am an ex-professional hip hop dancer!   

My clinical interests mainly include dystonia in cerebral palsy (CP) as well as pediatric deep brain stimulation. I have worked with Aravamuthan on several research projects related to dystonia in CP, and next, I will be working with her on a rigorous characterization study to delineate the clinical spectrum of children with dystonia in CP that will help guide the clinical approach to this patient population and improve patient outcomes.
