Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Here at Cincinnati Children’s, we have participated in many research studies including moms and babies. Our favorite studies to do are the ones where we get to see babies grow and thrive over many years. Our HBCD team is led by Dr. Stephanie Merhar, a neonatologist and neonatal follow-up expert, and Dr. Jen Vannest, a speech-language pathologist and MRI expert. We work closely with our community outreach programs and partner delivery hospitals and hope to recruit a group of mothers and children who reflect the diversity of our Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community. Our study visits take place in Cincinnati Children's newest "T" research building, which includes clinic rooms, MRI scanners, EEG machines, and places for families to relax, all in one convenient location. We are excited to interact with our participants and watch families grow!
