Elizabeth Rogers completed her undergraduate degree in Slavic Languages and Literature and History of Science at Harvard University in 1998.  She then received her medical degree from Stanford University in 2003 and completed residency training in pediatrics at University of California San Francisco.  Her major interests are in the neurodevelopmental follow up of premature and critically ill neonates, developmental care in the NICU, medical student and resident education in neonatal and pediatric critical care, neonatal resuscitation, and family-centered and palliative care.

Dr. Rogers believes that study of the neurodevelopmental outcomes of NICU graduates grounds the care of infants in the Intensive Care Nursery.  Her current interests are in defining the outcomes of the “new” prematurity, with an increased number of premature infants born to mothers of advanced maternal age, with chronic disease and preeclampsia, and conceived through assisted reproductive technologies.  She recently received a pediatric fellowship grant from MedImmune, Inc. for her work studying the outcomes of premature infants conceived by ART.
