As the director of clinical studies for the BIDMC NICU, I serve as the site principal investigator on an array of projects, both trials and observational studies. These currently include a trial of extended caffeine dosing to improve oxygenation and ultimately neurodevelopmental outcome, a study of use of a retinal camera as a telemedicine technique to optimize retinopathy of prematurity screening in underserved areas, an ultrasound evaluation of timing of closure of the ductus venosus as a possible silent trigger for necrotizing enterocolitis, and a randomized controlled trial of general versus regional anesthesia for inguinal hernia repair, among others. The goal of all of my varied research activities is to improve neonatal clinical care through knowledge of best treatment options.
About Mary Lucia Gregory
I am an Instructor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and a neonatologist at BIDMC. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alabama and my Medical Doctorate from the University of Alabama School of Medicine. My first two years of pediatric residency training were completed at the University of Alabama Hospitals in Birmingham, Alabama, and my senior resident year was at the Boston Combined Residency Program. After an intervening year as a hospitalist in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital Boston, I completed a fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Harvard Medical School in 2007. During my neonatal fellowship training, I was accepted into the Scholars in Clinical Science Program at Harvard Medical School, through which I achieved a Masters in Medical Science. I am currently the director of clinical studies in the BIDMC NICU. My clinical practice is primarily in the BIDMC NICU, but I also attend in the BIDMC newborn nursery and the Children’s Hospital Boston Infant Follow-up Program. I additionally direct the student clerkships for the Tufts Medical School first year selective, the Harvard Medical School fourth year subinternship, and the observership experience in the BIDMC NICU. I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the AAP Section on Perinatal Pediatrics, and the New England Perinatal Society.
