Research Interests

NICU patients, who are often fragile, premature and of very low birth weight (VLBW), require careful nutritional management to ensure proper growth and development. Dr. Crowley is passionate about neonatal nutrition, and has devoted years of study to infant nutrition. She is actively engaged in research to improve our understanding of newborn nutrition and has established guidelines for enteral and parenteral feeding in the NICU. Dr. Crowley also participates in clinical trials designed to improve infant feeding formulations, including TPN and discharge formulas. Research in this area will lead to individualized newborn nutrition and enhanced clinical outcomes.

Dr. Crowley participates in the infant follow-up clinic, where she focuses on neurodevelopmental outcomes. Her work in the follow-up clinic supports clinical trials, and is essential to the evaluation of interventions in the NICU. Dr. Crowley is also the Medical Director of the Newborn Hearing Screening Program, working closely with the audiologists to identify ways to improve the detection of congenital hearing loss.
