The physicians in Neonatology have broad academic and clinical interests. Some examples include basic research in the developing lung, lung injury, the pulmonary vasculature, and the surfactant system. Clinical research interests include prevention of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, prevention of nosocomial infection, and effect of varying levels of oxygen on neonatal premature infant resuscitation. Clinical academic interests focus on transport, resuscitation, CLABSI reduction and use of simulation in clinical medicine. All physicians are committed to providing patient and family-centered care in our NICU.
