MULTICENTER NETWORK OF NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNITS

  • Poindexter, Brenda, (PI)

Project: Research project

Description

The Division of Neonatology at the University of Cincinnati and the
Children's Hospital Medical Center is applying to be a part of the Neonatal
Research Network. Our major strengths are the following: 1) high
intensive care admission rate, due to the combination of a University
Hospital based Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a Children's
Hospital NICU geographically adjacent, and philosophically integrated by
the sam neonatologists; 2) a unique, community-wide integrated, and fully
operational neonatal/perinatal outreach network; 3) a strong commitment,
and track record of excellence in federally funded investigator-initiated
and center grant related research, both basic and clinical; 4) a unique
Perinatal Research Institute; 5) unique, ultramodern NICU facilities, with
excellent infant survival statistics; 6) longstanding documented
collaboration with maternal-fetal medicine, in clinical care, research, and
training; 7) large and reputable neonatal research fellowship with NIH
funding; 8) large group of exceptionally talented neonatologists, all
committed to our contribution to the network; and 9) documented track
record of collaborative research with other centers. We believe that the
above mentioned strengths make us an excellent candidate for the network,
and further strengthen the network.
