Professional Bio

My clinical interests include the studying the effects of jaundice, nutrition, and environmental toxins on developing nervous system in neonates. My future interests include long-term neurodevelopmental outcome, including language, autism and central auditory processing disorders of premature and late preterm neonates

Research Bio

Dr. Amin's research interests include studying the effects of jaundice, nutritional, and environmental toxins on developing nervous system in neonates using auditory brainstem responses. He is NIH-funded to study the level of jaundice that is associated with transient or permanent abnormal changes in auditory nervous system in preterm and term neonates. He is also studying the effect of lead and other environmental toxins on a developing auditory nervous system. In addition, he is investigating the role of nutritional and hormonal factors on brain development. Dr. Amin's future interests include long-term neurodevelopmental outcome, including language outcome and central auditory processing disorders of premature and late preterm neonates.

Also, he is interested in studying genetic polymorphism to determine why there are ethnic differences in bilirubin production and susceptibility to bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity. He has been involved in exploring a new technique using fluorscent spectrophotometry to measure free bilirubin levels, a more specific marker of bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity. He is also funded to evaluate dental developmental outcome in premature infants. His work is supported by NICHD, CTSI, and NIDCR.
