Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics - Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Dr. Lakshmanan's research interests and goals have been to address disparities in health care delivery in the field of perinatal-neonatal medicine. With assistance with research funding, she created "Baby Steps LA" a mobile health solution to help families transition from hospital (from the neonatal intensive care unit) to home. She hopes to lead research efforts that identify interventions to empower families to care for high-risk infants that both influence health policy and clinical practice.
