Finding Hope for the Smallest Patients: Eva's Story

Dr. Virginia Pascual is on a mission

Dr. Virginia Pascual is on a mission to help sick kids. As the Drukier Director of the Gale and Ira Drukier Institute for Children’s Health at Weill Cornell Medicine, that means fostering a passion for unconventional thinking. Children are not little adults.  In one Drukier Institute research project, Dr. Pascual and her team --  investigated a disorder called systemic onset juvenile arthritis, which causes joint inflammation, rashes and other symptoms in young children and has no effective therapies.  Through basic research, a collaboration with Hospital for Special Surgery, and a pilot clinical trial, the team was able to improve the life of one little girl.
