Overview  |  Grants/Awards


Dr. Sullivan's interdisciplinary research has focused on the biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors to understand the developmental trajectories of preterm infants. She leads one of the longest running NIH follow-up study of premature infants at adulthood in the United States. Taking a longitudinal approach enables prospective testing to determine if prematurity impacts early disease onset within a context of lifetime medical and environmental risks. These data bring a strong body of research evidence to clinical strategies invoking nurse-parent partnership and restructuring specific components of the environmental context to promote optimal infant development. She brings a fresh perspective on preterm development to this significant national and international issue.
