Dr. Gleason's primary interest is in the care of high-risk newborns, especially those infants born at the "limits of viability" (23-24 weeks gestation). She interested in improving our clinical practices and in preventative or neuroprotective strategies in caring for these "micronates", who are at high risk for neurodevelopmental disorders. Her research has focused on the developing brain, specifically the effects of drugs such as cocaine, alcohol and narcotics, for the past 25 years. More recently, she has studied the long-term effects of neonatal pain and stress and our attempts to ameliorate these effects with narcotics, such as morphine.
