Welcome to the Division of Neonatology at the University of California, San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital. Our division contains a large and growing number of clinical investigators, basic research scientists, and trainees. Not only do we provide cutting edge neonatal care to critically ill newborns across the San Diego area, but also continually strive to discover new knowledge, bring innovation and technology into the NICU, and improve the quality of neonatal care.
