Overview

The Division of Neonatology promotes the health and well-being of the newly born infant, whether critically ill, premature, or simply in need of special observation or an extended hospital stay.

Our mission includes educating residents and medical students, supporting the community through continuing education opportunities, and advancing patient care through research.

Basic and translational research interests include: genetic contributors to premature birth, chronic lung disease of prematurity, infection and inflammation, infant nutrition, iron metabolism, respiratory drive, physiology vascular adaptations in pregnancy, and vision research. Clinical research interests include psychophysiological neonatal patterns, studies on patients returning to the follow-up clinic, and models and methods of maternal-infant health care delivery.

Ongoing epidemiology projects use an extensive regional and statewide perinatal database to include all phases of perinatal health care, including neonatal follow-up. Residents may also pursue perinatal ethics training through the Department of Pediatrics’ strong medical ethics program.
