Neonatology Research Program

Research in the Division of Neonatology includes basic and clinical science research that centers on brain injury, fetal origins of disease, genetic and acquired lung disease, intestinal injury in premature newborns, and optimizing nutritional support for critically ill newborns, and clinical trials that focus on developing and evaluating the effectiveness of new or improved treatments. Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago is also a part of the Children’s Hospitals Neonatal Consortium, a collaborative group of 24 U.S. neonatal intensive care units that develops best practices to improve outcomes for medically complex babies. Learn more about the Neonatology Research Program.
