Dr. Stroustrup’s research interests span the disciplines of perinatal epidemiology, neonatology, and environmental health. Specifically, she works to better understand modifiable causes of adverse outcomes in neonates born preterm, low birth weight, or otherwise ill.  Her current research focuses on elucidating potential environmental contributors to poor neurodevelopmental outcomes in NICU graduates. 

Current research support:

NIH/ NIEHS 1K23ES022268-01  (PI: Stroustrup A)      9/3/2013 – 5/31/2018
Chemical Exposures and Infant Outcomes in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Description: In this project we aim to understand the impact of chemical and non-chemical (social, emotional) exposures in the hospital environment on long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes of preterm infants.  This work could allow modification of the NICU experience to optimize outcomes for hundreds of thousands of children born preterm each year.
Role: PI

Completed research support (within the past 3 years):

Passport Foundation  (PI: Stroustrup A)                      12/1/2011 – 12/30/2013
Environmental chemical exposure in the neonatal intensive care unit
Description: In this project we are both assessing very low birth weight infants hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit for exposure to industrial chemicals and validating an exposure checklist tool.
Role: PI

Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center
(PI: Stroustrup A)                                                                7/1/2011-6/30/2013

Hospital-based phthalate exposure in very low birth weight neonates
Description: In this project we are investigating the relationship between phthalate and BPA exposure in the neonatal intensive care unit among very low birth weight infants and clinical outcomes including neurodevelopmental progress, somatic growth, and thyroid function.
Role: PI

NIH KL2RR029885   (PI: Sampson H)                          7/1/2010 – 6/30/2012
Identification of early predictors of fetomaternal hemorrhage and development of an automated screening strategy for at-risk pregnancies
Description: In this study we are identifying early clinical predictors of fetomaternal hemorrhage and piloting multiple laboratory testing strategies to identify the disease in the general pregnant population.
Role: KL2 Investigator

NIH L40 HL090239     (PI: Stroustrup A)                        7/1/2007-6/30/2009
Epidemiology and management of transient tachypnea of the newborn
Description: In this series of studies, we are investigating the epidemiology and potential novel management strategies for transient tachypnea of the newborn via patient-oriented research and a pilot clinical trial.
Role: PI

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Stroustrup did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
