Swaiman, Kenneth F. Director Emeritus, Division of Pediatric Neurology, Professor Emeritus of Neurology and Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Ashwal, Stephen Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics, Chief of the Division of Child Neurology and Pediatrics, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, California.

Dr. Stephen Ashwal is Distinguished Professor and Chief of the Division of Child Neurology in the Department of Pediatrics at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. He is a graduate of New York University School of Medicine (1966-70), and completed his residency training programs in Pediatrics (Bellevue Hospital, 70-73) and in Child Neurology (University of Minnesota, 73-76).

His research activities have focused on critical care issues in child neurology related to brain death, the vegetative and minimally conscious states, bacterial meningitis, and near drowning; the role of nitric oxide in focal cerebral ischemia; development of animal models of neonatal stroke and the use of proton spectroscopy for outcome prediction after acute CNS injuries.

He has been a member of the Child Neurology Society since 1975 and served as chair of the Scientific Selection, Ethics, Archives and Practice Committee, Councilor from the West, Secretary-Treasurer of the Society, and President (2001-03). Dr. Ashwal edited The Founders of Child Neurology, published on behalf of the Society in 1990, that is a history of the field of child neurology and its major contributors. He served as co-chair (representing the CNS) on The Multi-Society Task Force on the Persistent Vegetative State. He has been active in the development of practice parameters related to child neurology and served as a member of the Quality Standard Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology that is responsible for development of guidelines dealing with issues related to the evaluation of children with autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, headaches and status epilepticus. With Dr. Kenneth Swaiman and Dr. Donna Ferriero, he served as coeditor of one of the main textbooks in the field of child neurology, Pediatric Neurology: Principles & Practice (2006).
