The clinical management of patients with cerebral palsy (CP) is often challenging due to the complex nature of the condition and difficulties in identifying affected children early in life. Recent advances in genomics, cell and tissue physiology, biomechanics, imaging technologies, and integrated therapeutic approaches have opened dramatic new possibilities for improving diagnosis, clinical care, and quality of life for individuals with CP. For this Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine, we seek articles from a broad range of disciplines that address the early identification of CP, targeted medical and surgical care, personalized therapeutic and rehabilitative pathways, and precision medical approaches for all types of cerebral palsy. We are particularly interested in findings that expand the potential for targeted care early in life and personalized interventions across the lifespan.
