Discovery (Biological & Genetic Mechanisms)

Dr. Manon Ranger conducts translational research, integrating preclinical investigations with clinical studies in preterm neonates undergoing intensive neonatal care to uncover mechanisms of vulnerability to early adversity (e.g. stress/pain, inflammation, treatments) in relation to brain development. She also investigates and tests methods to mitigate the adverse effects of these undesirable events. She seeks to expand the repertoire of nursing practice by conducting cross-disciplinary translational research that integrates laboratory and clinical studies, so that her work will have a direct impact for improving the health of the most vulnerable infants and their families.
