Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Buddington’s research program is recognized for improving the care of infants born preterm. The unique advanced neonatal intensive care unit he has established at UTHSC for using pigs as a translational model is leading to transformational changes in numerous aspects of neonatology. Research by Dr. Buddington and his collaborators is funded by NIH, foundations, and private interests seeking to improve care and outcomes of babies born too early or very small. His establishment of the Institute for Prematurity and Perinatal Research has the goal of UTHSC and Memphis leading the world in advancing neonatal care through preclinical research and clinical trials. Another component of Dr. Buddington’s research is reducing toxicities of chemotherapies used for pediatric cancer patients and by doing so increase remission rates.
