Karl Kuban brings depth and breadth in clinical care, research and teaching to his role as Chief of the Pediatric Neurology Division at Boston Medical Center. Dr. Kuban was resident training coordinator in Pediatric Neurology at both Children’s Hospital Boston, where he was on staff for 16 years, and at Tufts-New England Medical Center, where he was Associate Chief for 8 years. He has authored more than 70 original peer-reviewed publications, has created an interactive training CD/video for conducting a pediatric neurological examination, and has received awards for teaching and patient care.

Dr. Kuban completed his pediatrics training at Children’s Hospital Boston and his neurology training in the Longwood Area/Children’s Hospital Neurological Training Program. Dr. Kuban obtained a master’s degree in epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health and he has had a broad range of research interests, including ones focused on neonatal neurology, cerebral palsy, childhood stroke, autism and brain injury related to congenital heart disease. He currently serves as co-principal investigator for a multi-center NIH study looking at biological markers in the bloods of babies born under 28 weeks gestation.
