Irina Burd, M.D., PhD
The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is a world leader in biomedical and health services research. JHU has a strong research infrastructure and an existent interdisciplinary network of neonatology, neurology, radiology, genetics and maternal-fetal medicine investigators. This infrastructure forms a solid foundation for the success of our program.
Currently supported research includes pathophysiology of fetal brain development with intrauterine insults, ultrasound and bio- markers of fetal well-being and bio-markers for fetal disease stratification and response to treatment (such as magnesium sulfate administration or head cooling as in cases of neuroinflammation). In line with available advancements in stem cell research for the ultimate goal of curing genetic diseases, we are planning to initiate a cross-disciplinary program. This program would be unique in that it will have an international outreach that will offer the potential for a future cure to families for diseases once thought to be lethal and those affecting quality of life.
- To advance world-class discovery in biomedical and health services through innovative translational research
- To derive cures for prenatally diagnosed diseases by cutting across multiple basic science and clinical disciplines
- To recruit and train future prenatal leaders with expertise in fetal medicine to advance clinical care through research and discovery
