Research & Publications

Research Summary

Maureen Gilmore’s clinical and research interest focuses on evaluating neuroprotective strategies for term and preterm newborns at risk for brain injury. She serves as the Johns Hopkins University site principal investigator (PI) for the NINDS-funded multicenter randomized controlled trial “Preterm Erythropoietin for Neuroprotection,” studying extreme preterm neonates and the effect of erythropoietin for neuroprotection. She is now following this cohort’s neurodevelopmental outcomes beyond age 2 years with semiannual surveys. She is a member of the multidisciplinary Neuro-Intensive Care Nursery, and collaborates on clinical projects for newborns with neonatal encephalopathy, including the continuous use of near-infrared spectroscopy and arterial blood pressure to study cerebrovascular autoregulation. Dr. Gilmore has a new collaboration with Carl Hunt (neonatology, Children’s National Hospital) in an NIH-funded multicenter randomized controlled trial studying extended use of caffeine in preterm neonates at term, to reduce potential effects of intermittent hypoxemia. She and Michelle Gontasz are collaborating with Allen Chen (oncology, Johns Hopkins Medicine) in the startup of a NICU “pictograph” study to reduce medical errors during order writing in the electronic medical record.

Patient Ratings & Comments

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to physician related questions on the national CG-CAHPS Medical Practice patient experience survey through Press Ganey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Comments are also gathered from our CG-CAHPS Medical Practice Survey through Press Ganey and displayed in their entirety. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
