Neonatal Research group Innsbruck

 (c) Elke
The neonatal research group is located at Innsbruck Medical University and focuses on different research aspects in neonatology. One main topic is the neonatal brain.
The first year of life is beyond question the most dynamic phase of brain development in life. Several factors might interfere with normal brain development with lifelong consequences.

With our work we now combine experimental and clinical research to develop protective strategies against newborn brain injury and to monitor and evaluate newborn brain development after birth.

Please find more information on our homepage about current research projects and feel free to contact us.

Forschung zum Schutz des Gehirns

Mehr und mehr zu früh geborene kleine Menschen überleben ihren zu frühen Start in das Leben. Dies ist möglich durch wesentliche Verbesserung der Medizin. Die Anzahl der überlebenden zu kleinen Kinder nimmt zu. Aber trotz der Verbesserung der Medizin gibt es noch ungelöste Probleme. Die Forschung zum Schutz des neugeborenen Gehirns ist damit eine der größten Herausforderungen in der Kinderheilkunde.
