Christina Georgeades, MD
During my time as a pediatric surgery research fellow, I plan on working on projects that involve pediatric traumatic injuries, especially those that focus on reinjuries, risk factors, mental and behavioral health, and the impact of COVID-19. I will also be working on projects that assess rural outcomes for children that receive surgical care. Furthermore, I will be involved with projects regarding surgical education and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

I will be working with the pediatric general surgery division investigating a variety of topics, focusing mostly on congenital diseases including gastroschisis. I will be researching the genetic contribution to the gastroschisis by collaborating with the Linda T. and John A. Mellowes Center for Genomic Sciences and Precision Medicine to evaluate samples from families with children born with gastroschisis. This will help improve our understanding and hopefully the management of babies born with gastroschisis.
