â€‹Investigators have built an international reputation in research on childhood vaccines, clinical interventions, and quality of care for infants admitted to neonatal intensive care units, as well as childhood conditions including asthma, autism and obesity.
Investigators are conducting mixed-methods studies on behavioral interventions and the transition from pediatric to adult care among children with autism spectrum disorders, in order to gain insights into patient, parent, and provider experiences and improve the delivery of care to this growing population.
â€‹Our investigators have received one of the awards from the NIH-funded program, Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO),
to study how in utero
exposure to chemicals in the environment, maternal lifestyle, and psychosocial factors affect infant growth, obesity, and neurodevelopment.
