Active Research Projects/Grants

  • Economic evaluation alongside the Transfusion of Premature (ToP) trial: Completed alongside the NICHD Neonatal Research Network’s randomized controlled trial evaluating higher hemoglobin threshold for transfusion of ELBW infants, this economic evaluation will incorporate the costs associated with the clinical outcomes.
  • Parent costs of prematurity:  Incorporating parent surveys completed in multiple trials, this work emphasizes the lesser understood out of pocket and wage loss costs of families with premature infants.
  • Variation in NICU care ($36,944):  This work uses large databases to uncover variation in care, resource use and costs for infants hospitalized in neonatal intensive care units.
