Pediatric Research Day

Dr. Steinbrekera received the Clinical Research Award for Outstanding Presentation during the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics Research Day on April 18, 2017. Dr. Steinbrekera is a second year neonatology fellow performing research in Dr. Roghair's laboratory. Her literature review, published in the Journal of Endocrinology (PMID: 27613336), revealed critical gaps in our understanding of the effect of preterm delivery and breast milk intake on neonatal leptin levels. She is now filling those gaps and taking the practice of neonatology to the next level of evidence based and patient centric care. Congratulations to Dr. Steinbrekera on this well deserved honor!
