NEPTuNE Programme

(HRB Neonatal Encephalopathy PhD Training Network) – HRB NEPTuNE will train five PhD students in multidisciplinary research projects related to Neonatal Encephalopathy in premier research centres in Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork and NUI Galway.


(Algorithm for Neonatal Seizure Recognition) – The ANSeR study has developed a computer algorithm that can detect seizures in newborn babes and automatically alert the healthcare team if there are problems. The study was conducted in UCC’s Infant Centre.


(Neonatal Inflammation and Multiorgan dysfunction and Brain injury research)  – This HRB funded NIMBUS study will investigate Neonatal Inflammation and Multiorgan dysfunction in Neonatal Encephalopathy. It also hopes to identify Clinical and Biomarker Prognostic Indicators.


(Followup of Inflammatory Responses and multiorgan outcomes FoLlowing neonatal brain injury.) – The HRB funded FIREFLY project willexamine multiorgan and neurodevelopmental outcome following neonatal brain injury. This study will also consider followup Inflammatory Responses.


(GEnder and inflaMmatIon In neonatal encephalopathy.) – GEMINI is funded by the NCRC. The project will examine clinical and immunological outcomes in NE stratified by gender and Inflammasome response by gender in NE. It will also analyse the role of gender in immunometabolism in NE.


(SEveRE Neurological Impairment and children with medical complexity) – SERENITY aims to create a consensus-based definition of Severe Neurological Impairment, to quantify the multi-organ dysfunction associated with SNI, and to assess the quality of life of these children and their families.

DELPHI Project

The INFANT Centre’s DELPHI project will look at smart automated systems recognising patterns in electrical brain activity in infants with neonatal encephalopathy.
