Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe research focus of the lab is to understand molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders associated with premature birth, neonatal and fetal brain injury with the long-term goal of translating the lab’s findings into therapeutics. The research team employs a multidisciplinary approach involving genetics, molecular and developmental neurobiology, animal models and neural cells differentiated from patient-derived induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. In particular, the lab is using a powerful 3D human brain-region specific organoid system developed at Stanford (Nature Methods, 2015; Nature Protocols, 2018) to ask questions about brain injury during development.
Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the neonatal immune system, particularly the immune system of premature infants, and how it impacts the short and longterm health of this vulnerable population.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Neonatology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsFunded by NIH R01 grants:
1) Development and application of composite measure of NICU quality - Baby-MONITOR
2) High reliability, safety culture and caregiver resilience as modifiers of care quality
3) Modifiable racial/ethnic disparities in quality of care delivery
4) Effectiveness of regionalized care delivery systems for preterm newborns
