Innovation and Research

Our Stanford Medicine physician-scientists enjoy a unique collaborative environment at the Stanford University School of Medicine, sharing ideas across a variety of disciplines to rapidly advance treatments and successfully treat many children with complex cases that could not be resolved elsewhere. Our team has conducted research to better understand the causes of, and potential interventions for, brain injury in newborns. Ongoing neonatal neurology research seeks to identify ways to both improve care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and to use neurodevelopmental follow-up to understand more fully how to help babies in the years after they leave the hospital.
