Timothy Sanders provides skilled neonatal care for infants ranging from extreme prematurity through full term. He specializes in a spectrum of neonatal conditions requiring coordinated intensive care, including complex surgical care. He is experienced in the management of multiple modes of respiratory support, therapeutic hypothermia, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). As program director for the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship, he oversees the clinical education and scholarship pursuits of future neonatologists.
His independent research program investigates mechanisms of patterning and cell communication during embryogenesis, with a particular focus on nervous system development, using sophisticated methods for imaging biological processes in real time and at high resolution. His findings have been published in Cell Reports, Nature Neuroscience, and Nature.
Sanders received his MD from Weill Cornell Medical College. He completed his internship and residency at Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as fellowships in neonatal-perinatal medicine and cardiovascular research from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.
