Biography

Dr. Guillet provides care to ill newborns who require neonatal intensive care. She is most interested in the care and treatment of newborns with early brain injury and seizures and collaborates with colleagues around the world with similar interests. She is also a member of the Neonatal Kidney Collaborative, an international group of neonatologists and pediatric nephrologists who are interested in neonatal kidney injury.

Research

Dr. Guillet has an active clinical research program focused on the neonatal brain. The developing brain is at risk from the effects of centrally acting agents, including hypoxia, seizures, and medications; this risk is due in part to the fact that the brain may be more vulnerable during times of rapid maturational change. As the Rochester co-investigator for the NICHD Neonatal Research Network grant, she assists the PI and is responsible for network studies involving new treatments for neonatal brain injury. She is also a co-investigator for a PCORI-funded investigation of treatment of neonatal seizures. Other areas of clinical research interest include the auditory brainstem evoked response, its use as a tool to evaluate brain maturation, and its relationship to maternal iron status prior to delivery. She is also involved in studies of acute kidney injury in premature infants. Her work is supported in part by grants from the NIH and PCORI.
