Specialties:Pediatrics, Pediatrics Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine
Dr. Annemarie Stroustrup is an Associate Professor with joint appointments to the Department of Pediatrics, Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, and Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at the Icahn School of Medicine. She is also the acting Chief of the Division of Newborn Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital and Director of Newborn Services for the Mount Sinai Health System as well as the Program Director for Mount Sinai’s Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship.
In addition to attending in the NICU at Mount Sinai, Dr. Stroustrup heads a research program exploring the impact of hospital-based environmental exposures on multi-system long-term outcomes related to prematurity. Her multidisciplinary research interests span the fields of children’s environmental health, perinatal epidemiology, neonatology, and neurodevelopment.

Dr. Stroustrup’s research interests bridge 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.

Developmental Impact of NICU Exposure (DINE)
Description: This contract is part of the NIH Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Pediatric Cohorts program. The DINE cohort brings approximately 1,000 preterm infants born at 15 sites across the United States to ECHO, with the aim of evaluating the impact of NICU-based chemical andnon-chemical exposures on multi-system long-term outcomes to age 10.
Role: Co-I; site PI
NIH/ NIEHS 1K23ES022268-01 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.

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.
Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center 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.
NIH KL2RR029885 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.
NIH L40 HL090239 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.
