Dr. Laroia's research interests have focused on neonatal seizures, especially those related to stroke and hypoxic ischemic injury in the newborn. Her work has included development of criteria for long-term EEG monitoring in neonates at risk for seizures. Current projects include study of neuroprotective strategies in infants with hypoxic ischemic injury, Hyperbilirubinemia in the term neonate, Use of donor milk in preterm infants, and a qualitative study looking at barriers to communication between obstetricians and pediatricians in the delivery room.
