Professional Activities

Dr. Claudette Onyelobi Adegboro is assistant professor (CHS) in the Division of Neonatology and Newborn Nursery. She is a current member of the Wisconsin Association for Perinatal Care (WAPC) and a former member of the WAPC Board of Directors. Adegboro was selected as a Centennial Scholar (2021-2023) and was chosen as the 2022 Iams-Tuffli lecturer for her work to improve clinical practice and health outcomes among extremely preterm infants.

Clinical Interests

Adegboro is a neonatologist interested in optimizing care for extremely preterm infants born at 22 to 25 weeks gestation. She is a staunch advocate for pregnant persons and families seeking neonatal resuscitation and active care of “tiny babies” born at the tender and critical age of 22 weeks gestation. Adegboro functions as a “tiny baby” team leader and facilitates education among fellow providers, trainees, and staff.

Research Interests

Adegboro’s research focuses on studying neurodevelopmental outcomes among extremely preterm infants. Her interests include characterizing the downstream effects of early brain injury (among both extremely preterm infants and late preterm infants), optimizing neuroprotective strategies to improve outcomes among early-gestation infants, and engaging collaborators (both inside and outside the institution) to develop central tracking databases capable of monitoring health trends through early childhood.
