The Branch supports basic and clinical studies concerned with the etiology, pathophysiology, therapy, and follow-up of conditions associated with the perinatal and neonatal period including adaptation to extrauterine life, hyperbilirubinemia, and sequelae of prematurity such as asphyxia, respiratory distress, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, hypoglycemia, anemia, and infection.

PPB-supported researchers used data collected through the Neonatal Research Network to create a tool that shows outcome trends for infants born extremely preterm. To access the tool and learn about the data, visit http://www.nichd.nih.gov/about/org/der/branches/ppb/Pages/overview.aspx.​​​
