Steven P. Miller, FRCPC, MDCM. Neonatologist Investigator
Steven P. Miller, FRCPC, MDCM. Neonatologist Investigator, BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, Hudson Family Hospital Chair in Pediatric Medicine, Professor and Head, Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia, Chief Pediatric Medicine, BC Children’s Hospital & Sunny Hill Health Centre, Provincial Health Services Authority. The focus of his neonatal neurology research group is to better understand brain development and injury in the newborn. Using advanced magnetic resonance (MR) techniques and bedside brain monitoring study how white matter injury and systemic illness affects brain development in critically ill newborns. A better understanding of the factors that impact brain development and injury will allow us to directly improve the neurodevelopmental outcome of high-risk newborns.
