Terrie E. Inder, M.D.
Washington University in St. Louis
Areas of Specialty: Dr. Inder holds board certifications in pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine with expertise in neurology and neonatology.
Research and Clinical Activities: As Head of both the Washington University Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (WUIDDRC) and the Washington University Neonatal Development Research (WUNDER) team, Dr. Inder conducts studies at the bedsides of newborn infants in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care unit at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. She focuses primarily on premature infants, sick term infants, and infants with cardiac diseases. In collaboration with her WUNDER colleagues, Dr. Inder is working to determine the extent to which the brain can adapt to developmental abnormalities caused by premature birth, with the goal of informing and developing clinical strategies that will help normalize brain development. Dr. Inder’s multidisciplinary research requires the expertise of various specialties, much like the research necessary for SmartTots.
Dr. Inder is an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Pediatrics and author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications. Her vast experience is a great asset to the SmartTots Scientific Advisory Board.
