E-mail: sconrad@lsuhsc.edu

Dr. Conrad’s research interest focus on the computational analysis of transport phenomenon in natural and artificial organs using micro-, macro- and multiscale approaches. Recent and current projects include the impact of vascular stenosis on oxygen delivery to tissue beds, particle-based medication delivery to the respiratory system, hemodynamics of dialysis graft circuits, and species transport during hemofiltration and hemodialysis. Research methods are based on computational fluid dynamics and other applications of multiphysics finite element analysis.

Details: http://www.mtnaneocare.com/homepage.cfm?id=1

As a neonatal nurse practitioner, Dr. Eklund has decades of experience in medical management of ill or premature infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Setting. Prior to entering the neonatal field, her clinical focus was in adult critical care, especially in the cardiovascular specialty. Her current research interest is in improving the quality of care for the vulnerable population by combining current technologies with relevant neonatal specific knowledge. The aim is to focus on innovative ideas, which can lead to better modalities for care providers to improve patients’ physiological and neurobehavioral outcomes.

Other areas of interest include studying the Global Neonatal Workforce, and improving health education and policies that impact neonatal practice and neonatal outcomes worldwide. She collaborates with the Council of International Neonatal Nurses to conduct international research and participates in designing international initiatives.

She has authored textbook chapters in neonatal nursing in the United States and edited the first comprehensive Neonatal Nursing textbook in Japan. Her research in Advanced Practice Nursing, Global Neonatal Workforce, and Neonatal Scope of Practice has been published nationally and internationally. Her publications, including multiple peer-reviewed articles, have appeared in journals in medicine and surgery in addition to nursing.
