Research Pioneers of Newborn Care
University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is one of the pioneers of newborn care. For more than 50 years, our researchers and physicians have conducted key clinical studies that have changed how we care for newborns.
Expanding upon the insight of our clinical pediatric research and studies, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital principal investigators have a rich tradition of modeling neonatal disease in the basic science laboratory to explore potential mechanisms underlying numerous NICU outcomes and to test novel therapies.
