The art and science of neonatal intensive care is evolving rapidly and medical advances in this field are often largely dependent on education, research and collaboration. MANA has a robust commitment to research and education; activities that we believe will shape the future of neonatal medicine and improve patient outcomes. Members of the group perform cutting-edge pre-clinical and clinical research, as well as NICU-based quality improvement initiatives. MANA faculty also mentor medical students and nursing students from Thomas Jefferson University, Rowan University and St. George’s University; and we are intimately involved in the Pediatric Residency Program at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Atlantic Health System. Additionally, MANA hosts many educational events throughout the year, which gives our staff opportunities to discuss the clinical management of neonates and to establish consistency for providing the best neonatal care.
