UM’s International Neonatal Conference Celebrates 36 Years
Leading experts in neonatology from 48 countries once again gathered at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach for the Miller School’s 36th Annual International Miami Neonatology Conference.
Held October 31 through November 3, the three-day conference and one-day workshop included discussions on nutritional management, bionanotechnology, neonatal infection, oxygen management, cardiopulmonary issues, long-term developmental outcomes, and other topics critical to the unique needs of premature infants.
More than 1,000 neonatologists, nurses, and respiratory therapists attended the conference, one of the largest and most established neonatal meetings in the world.
Featuring renowned neonatal and perinatal specialists from around the globe and the Miller School’s Olaf A. Bodamer, M.D., Ph.D., professor of human genetics, and Sylvia Daunert, Ph.D., professor and chair of biochemistry and molecular biology, the conference also hosted a reunion and luncheon for graduates of the University of Miami’s Neonatology Fellowship Program at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Under the leadership of program co-directors Eduardo Bancalari, M.D., professor of pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology, and Charles R. Bauer, M.D., professor of pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and psychology, plans are already underway for the 37th Annual International Conference, which will be held November 13-16, 2013, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
