The Division of Neonatology is dedicated to providing innovative care, conducting research, and teaching skills to recognize and treat medical problems of the neonate.
The Division of Neonatology participates fully in the mission of the Department of Pediatrics, focusing its attention through patient care, teaching and research on medical problems that arise during infancy and the sequelae of neonatal diseases that persist into later life.
For members of the division, a desire to provide the highest quality care for critically ill infants is the principal reason for a career in neonatal medicine. The privilege of serving our patients and their families on our NICUs and through our NICU Follow-up Program motivates and inspires all of us.
Conducting basic and clinical research in the field of neonatal medicine is an important mission of this division. The division is committed to studying the underlying processes of the diseases that affect our patients and bringing those discoveries to the bedside in a timely way in order to improve important health outcomes such as neurodevelopment, nutrition, metabolic and cardiovascular health and immune health. Our research investments span from fundamental laboratory science to clinical trials and occur globally as well as locally.
