    Dr. Lewis is a neonatologist and translational researcher in neonatal and perinatal Pharmacology. As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at The University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Medicine, she is a physician scientist, spending 25% of her time as an attending in our Level IV NICU and 75% of her time designing, implementing and managing clinical research programs in neonatal pharmacology at Children’s Mercy Hospital. The overarching goal of her research program is to bring precision therapeutics to the NICU population using modern pharmacology tools. The research program focuses on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and pharmacogenetics of both old and new drugs used to treat neonatal disease, with an emphasis on optimizing and individualizing drug therapy in neonates.

    Dr. Lewis has established the Maternal Neonatal Pharmacogenetic Repository at Children’s Mercy Hospital and has multiple prospective pharmacogenetic cohort studies enrolling and depositing diverse samples to this repository. In addition, she is the recipient of a K23 from NICHD and the Robert Wood Johns Harold Amos Career Development award, both supporting ongoing neonatal pharmacology research.

    Please feel free to contact her if interested in developmental pharmacology research.
