As a neonatal physiologist, I have dedicated my research career to improving cardiovascular support for clinical management of preterm infants for optimal health outcomes. Over the past 11 years, I have established a tertiary level neonatal intensive care unit for very preterm piglets to understand the unique cardiovascular system of preterm neonates. Using this pre-clinical model, we now have insight into unique aspects of preterm cardiovascular physiology. With our clinical collaborators, we are at the forefront of novel therapy development to provide effective cardiovascular support for preterm infants.
