Research Bio

Dr. D'Angio's research focuses on immunizations and infections in the premature infant. He has recently led federally-funded multi-center studies investigating the responses of premature infants to the conjugate pneumococcal vaccine and influenza vaccine. He is the principal investigator of the Premature Infant Vaccine Collaborative, formed to evaluate vaccine immunogenicity in premature infants. He is principal investigator for a combined University of Rochester-University of Buffalo site in the NICHD Neonatal Research Network, an 18-center consortium performing research in newborns. He is a co-investigator on NIH grants investigating respiratory infections and outcomes in the premature infant. Dr. D'Angio is also involved in research into prevention of catheter-related infections, neonatal outcomes and clinical and research ethics.
