Christina Chan was an undergraduate of Stanford University ('01). Her research focus and publications have focused on neonatal immune biomarker investigation and human nutrition, and she has also been involved in point-of-care ultrasound use in the NICU, neonatal resuscitation quality improvement, and PICC line management as part of a multidisciplinary team. In addition to her academic interests, she has spent time working in resource limited settings providing critical care for newborns in Kampala, Uganda and providing mobile health clinics in Cuc Phuong, Vietnam. She is particularly interested in continuing to investigate the use of human milk and its role in neonatal immune protection as well as continuing to promote the education of our NICU families and all the staff participating in neonatal care.
