Session Type: Research

Session Description: If you are interested in learning a potential mechanism of brain injury and developmental delay in vulnerable neonates, then you should attend this session. This study examines whether impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation is associated with poorer neurodevelopmental outcomes in neonates with congenital heart disease compared to healthy controls.
Primary Presenter Bio: Nhu Tran received her PhD from UCLA and MSN and BSN from USC. Nhu is certified in the NICU and as a research professional. Nhu has 15 years of experience in the NICU and 4 years of experience as a research nurse. Nhu's goal is to reduce and prevent delays by identifying causes of developmental delay in high risk children.
