Professor (Research) of Pediatrics (Neonatology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on epidemiologic studies related to maternal and child health. Current projects address congenital anomalies of craniofacial, urogenital, musculoskeletal and central nervous system structures and how they relate to genetics, nutrition, stress, and environmental contaminants. Physiologic pathways encompassed by these studies include one-carbon metabolism, oxidative stress, HPA axis activation, and sex steroid metabolism. In particular, we are interested in discovering how environmental factors and genetic susceptibility may interact to affect these pathways and impact risks of these outcomes. Other active projects include investigations into the etiology of preterm delivery and stillbirth, and factors affecting the care and outcomes of infants with birth defects.

Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Bio Christina Chan was an undergraduate of Stanford University ('01). Her research focus and publications have focused on neonatal immune biomarker investigation and human nutrition, and she has also been involved in point-of-care ultrasound use in the NICU, neonatal resuscitation quality improvement, and PICC line management as part of a multidisciplinary team. In addition to her academic interests, she has spent time working in resource limited settings providing critical care for newborns in Kampala, Uganda and providing mobile health clinics in Cuc Phuong, Vietnam. She is particularly interested in continuing to investigate the use of human milk and its role in neonatal immune protection as well as continuing to promote the education of our NICU families and all the staff participating in neonatal care.
