Dr Eveline Staub is a specialist in general paediatrics, neonatology and paediatric intensive care. She is currently a consultant neonatologist at Royal North Shore Hospital, NSW, focusing on clinical work with patients and families.
Dr Staub and Professor Kluckow are investigating hypertension and problems associated with blood vessels in babies currently being born pre-term, to try to understand what is causing these teens and young adults born prematurely to suffer these cardiac risk factors at such a younger age than those born at term. This study collaborates with several other hospitals around Australia to develop and conduct new clinical studies in their quest to understand the problems with heart function in premature and sick infants.
