Examples include research that:

  • assesses the developmental outcomes of infants who were in the neonatal intensive care unit, experienced a lack of oxygen and received a CoolCap treatment;

Cool Cap

  • determines the long-term social-emotional and academic outcomes of 1st grade children with a history of prematurity

The Interdisciplinary Center for Program Evaluation studies:

  • efficacy of early childhood programs on child and family outcomes
