Neonatology Research

NYU Langone’s Division of Neonatology is at the forefront of laboratory and clinical research to advance the field of neonatology. The division fosters the growth and development of the faculty and fellows through ongoing research opportunities.

Investigators are using near-infrared spectroscopy to measure target organ saturation in the neonatal population and researching the use of a new mode of neonatal ventilation, neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA). Researchers study associated morbidities in late preterm neonates and biomarkers of sepsis and hypoxic brain injury in neonates. The division is also participating in long-term follow-up of neonates with congenital heart diseases and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE).

Researchers in the division are also using novel mouse models of vaginal colonization and ascending infection during pregnancy to further the understanding of the mechanisms by which bacterial pathogens that colonize the maternal genital tract—group B Streptococcus, Escherichia coli, and Gardnerella vaginalis—contribute to adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes. The goal is to develop and test new vaccines.

The Beltzman Research Foundation Grant is an internal divisional grant used for neonatal HIE research. The grant funds this research to determine whether prenatal infection with group B Streptococcus leads to increased susceptibility to hypoxic ischemic brain injury after delivery.

A grant from the Crompton Candy Research Foundation provides the division with the opportunity to lead the transformation in neonatal care, discovering innovative interventions that help to ensure the long-term health of preterm infants. The grant supports early career faculty research and education.
