Education

Dr. Comi is the director of the Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Center. She graduated from SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine and received her training in pediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Buffalo and her child neurology training at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Her clinical specialization is in the treatment of the neurological aspects of Sturge-Weber syndrome and other capillary malformation related disorders.

Research

Her clinical research interests are focused on improving the early diagnosis and treatment of brain involvement in Sturge-Weber syndrome, in order to prevent ischemic brain injury in these infants and young children, and on studies to understand what causes Sturge-Weber syndrome. Her laboratory research work deals with the pathogenesis of Sturge-Weber syndrome recently shown to be caused by a somatic mutation and on developing new drug targets, screening assays, models and therapeutic strategies for Sturge-Weber syndrome. Her lab group also works on developing better neuroprotective and neuroregenerative responses to brain injury resulting from impaired blood flow to the brain.
