    Mei Baker, MD

    Dr. Baker is a full professor in the UW Department of Pediatrics and in 2016, was named the inaugural Wynne Mateffy Professor of Peroxisomal Disorders. She also co-directs the Newborn Screening Laboratory at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene. In 2014, Dr. Baker received the Harry Hannon Laboratory Improvement Award in Newborn Screening from the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL).

    “The biochemical fellowship allowed me to further study metabolic disorders that have a direct association with what I do every day—newborn screening. The training, with its combination of clinical and laboratory medicine, has provided the foundation for me to apply emerging technologies to implement new screening tests for disorders and to improve ongoing screening tests.”
