Leadership and Faculty
Laura Haneline, MD
Chief, Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
Title: Edwin L. Gresham Professor of Pediatrics
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Awards & Honors:
Dr. Haneline is a stem cell biologist whose research focuses on how dysfunction of stem and progenitor cells impacts the pathogenesis of hematopoietic and vascular diseases. Her laboratory is actively investigating whether pathologic oxidative stress encountered by either a child with type 1 diabetes or a fetus exposed to a diabetic intrauterine environment leads to altered endothelial progenitor cell function. She is involved in an NIH-funded Obstetric-Fetal Pharmacologic Research Unit Network that proposes basic and translational pharmacologic studies of drug disposition and effect on endothelial progenitor cell subsets during normal and abnormal pregnancies. Dr. Haneline is working with collaborators to explore the potential role of endothelial progenitor cell dysfunction in type 1 diabetes and childhood obesity.
David W. Boyle, MD
Co-Medical Director, Riley Maternity & Newborn Health
Associate Chief, Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
David W. Boyle, M.D. is a Professor of Pediatrics in the Section of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. His previous research efforts were in the area of regulation of fetal growth for which Dr. Boyle was awarded an R01 by the NIH. He has a national reputation for his basic research in fetal metabolism and has served as an ad hoc reviewer for a variety of NIH study sections. Dr. Boyle’s current research focuses on delivery room resuscitation of the newborn. Dr. Boyle served on the Neonatal Resuscitation Program Steering Committee for the American Academy of Pediatrics from 1998-2004, co-chairing the committee from 2001-2004. He is currently a member of the Neonatal Task Force for the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation. This task force develops the consensus on science and treatment recommendations for the provision of neonatal resuscitation. In addition, he is the director of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellowship-training program at Indiana University and is deeply committed to advancing the careers of academic neonatologists through both basic and clinical research.
