NEONATAL UPDATE 2022: the science of newborn care

the science of newborn care
28 November – 2 December 2022

As in-person meetings slowly become the norm again, it’s worthwhile noting the benefits and pleasure of personal interaction and knowledge-sharing. The 2022 meeting will actually be hybrid, allowing those who are unable to travel the option to attend virtually – the best of both worlds.

Would you be kind enough to share it with your network of paediatricians/neonatologists please?

I would also like to highlight the YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD which offers up to two young researchers the opportunity to present their findings at the meeting. Please recommend this feature to any colleagues who may be interested in applying.

As you may know the The Neonatal Update is renowned for its innovative programme, featuring contributions from a wide range of world-leading scientists and clinical researchers, some of whom have little direct involvement in newborn care. The aim of this meeting is to introduce delegates to areas of science not necessarily found in their day-to-day practice, to widen horizons and to foster new collaborations.

Professor Lyn Chitty, University College London – Non-invasive prenatal diagnosis: current status and future horizons

Professor Dominic Wilkinson, University of Oxford – Balancing the rights of mothers and babies before and after birth

Professor Liz Comrie-Thomson, Burnett Institute, Melbourne, Australia – Involving men to tackle gender inequity and improve maternal and newborn health

Professor Yacoub Khalaf, Kings College London – Assisted reproductive technologies: now and in the future

Professor Mark Hanson, University of Southampton – 1000 days for 1000 months: translating 20 years of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease research into policy and practice

Professor Brett Manley, The Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne – The role of high-flow therapy at resuscitation and during neonatal care

Professor Nikki Robertson, University of Edinburgh – A critique of current neuroprotective strategies

Professor Paolo de Coppi, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London – Management of neonates with oesophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula
