Basic/Clinical Research Fellowship

Baylor College of Medicine
Date Posted: November 12, 2018

The laboratory of Oluyinka Oluotoye, MD, PhD provides a rich experience in both basic and clinical research for an 18-month year research fellowship to start January, 2019. Our investigative interests include early predictors of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), fetal anesthesia, wound healing, various congenital anomalies and fetal diagnosis and therapy. Clinically we examine the outcomes of congenital anomalies such congenital diaphragmatic hernia, sacrococcygeal teratoma, omphalocele and congenital lung masses. Fellows in the Olutoye laboratory have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of basic science and clinical research projects. There are currently several IACUC-approved animal protocols and numerous IRB-approved clinical protocols from which to choose. There is the opportunity to maintain surgical skills, performing large animal surgery (pigs and sheep) as well as microsurgery (fetal mice). The fellow will have the opportunity to be involved with the fetal surgery program and conduct bimonthly multidisciplinary research meetings. Research funding is provided through external and institutional grants. While at Baylor College of Medicine, the fellow can also choose to join the residents in weekly small group preparation for the ABSITE, online institutional mock ABSITE exams, and surgical skills training sessions.
