We are a team of world-renowned Clinicians, Researchers and Students coming together to collaborate to improve the health outcomes of all newborn babies and their families. 

Globally, an estimated 15 million babies are born prematurely each year. Babies that are born premature or sick present with a range of immediate and longer terms needs that can significantly impact their future.

The Centre of Research Excellence in Newborn Medicine team is working to generate new knowledge in the areas of Newborn Resuscitation, Respiratory Support, Neuroimaging and Developmental Surveillance, and translate that knowledge into policy and practice, all with the overarching goal of improving the outcomes of preterm and sick infants.  

This is the third term of the CRE in Newborn Medicine and can expand this important work through a targeted program of research, purposefully linked to practice translation. 

Our vision

  • Generate new knowledge in four critical areas of newborn care, including resuscitation, respiratory support, developmental surveillance and neuroimaging
  • Engage in research projects that target specific gaps that we have identified with consumers, to ensure we continue to meet the needs of all preterm or sick babies and their families, and the health professionals that look after them
  • Effectively translate existing knowledge from our previous research, as well as new knowledge from this CRE, using well-established and novel implementation strategies, including web-based and mobile technologies
  • Identify and foster the development of future leaders in newborn medicine with a focus on training and mentoring as key priorities.
