UVA Researchers Seek Manuscripts on Neonatal Encephalopathy

Researchers at the University of Virginia's Department of Pediatrics are seeking manuscripts for a special issue focused on Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE), a leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. The special issue aims to explore the etiologies, biomarkers, preventative strategies, and therapies for NE to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes in affected infants.

Why this matters: The devastating consequences of neonatal encephalopathy, including high mortality rates and long-term neurodevelopmental disability, highlight the urgent need for better understanding and treatment of this condition. By advancing research in this area, scientists can improve outcomes for thousands of infants and families worldwide.

The special issue welcomes original research articles, review articles, and commentaries related to NE. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: epidemiology and risk factors; pathophysiology and mechanisms of brain injury; neuromonitoring and neuroimaging; biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis; neuroprotective therapies; and long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes. Manuscripts from both clinical and translational research are encouraged.

By bringing together the latest research on neonatal encephalopathy, this special issue aims to advance the field and stimulate new ideas and collaborations to improve outcomes for infants and families affected by this devastating condition. Manuscripts will undergo peer review prior to acceptance and publication. The submission deadline is September 30, 2024.
