Work in our lab focuses on understanding the physiologic basis for brain injury in neonates as well as the development of new methodologies for prediction of neurologic injury. The ultimate goal of these efforts is the development of new strategies for neonatal neuroprotection. Our lab group is a multi-disciplinary team of neonatologists, neurologists, pharmacists, students (high school, undergraduate and medical) and research support staff.

Currently we use large multimodality (NIRS, EEG, MRI) datasets to develop new approaches to understanding the pathophysiology of both preterm (intraventricular hemorrhage, white matter injury) and term (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy) forms of brain injury, as well as seizures in all neonates. We continue to recruit new patients for observational and clinical trials.
