Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Maureen Gilmore is an attending neonatologist with over 20 years of involvement in NICU-based clinical research. Her primary research interest is in neuroprotective strategies for term and preterm newborns at risk for brain injury.  Dr. Gilmore is a member of the JHH Neuro-Intensive Care Nursery group, and collaborates with researchers across multiple disciplines including Peds Neurology, Peds Neuroradiology, Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics, Peds ID, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Anesthesia/Critical Care Medicine.  Clinical projects for newborns with brain injury include continuous use of near-infrared spectroscopy and arterial blood pressure monitoring to study cerebrovascular autoregulation; impact of time to initiate therapeutic hypothermia; MRI findings; and improvements in sedation.  Dr. Gilmore served as the JHU Site principal investigator for the NINDS-funded multicenter PENUT trial studying the effect of erythropoietin for neuroprotection in extreme preterm neonates, and with follow-up of neurodevelopmental outcomes beyond age 2 years. More recent collaborations involve multicenter trials studying extended use of caffeine in preterm neonates at term to reduce potential effects of intermittent hypoxemia (ICAF), and a NICU pictographs trial to reduce medical errors during order writing in the electronic medical record.
