Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

I am interested in pediatric nutritional support and have experience evaluating new enteral and parenteral products especially for the neonate (I studied a "new" I.V. fat product for Abbott; I participated in a multicenter trial of a formula with fish oil in it for neonates with Mead Johnson and a multicenter trial of a new human milk fortifier for Wyeth). I am the medical director of our nutrition support team and home pharmacy and am interested in short- and long-term "outcome studies" re: use of TPN-impact on development of patient and family functioning in short bowel patients on long-term parenteral/enteral support.
