We are pleased to congratulate the BC Children's and BC Women's investigators who were awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant Spring 2019 competition. Our research community received nine new research and bridge grants totaling more than $5.8 million.
Dr. Joseph Ting is Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, University of British Columbia and Staff Neonatologist at BC Women’s Hospital. He completed his Residency in Pediatrics at Queen Mary Hospital, University of Hong Kong, in 2006 and obtained his Postgraduate Diploma in Infectious Diseases and Master of Public Health (Medical Statistics) from the University of Hong Kong in 2007 and 2009, respectively. In 2010 – 2013 he received his fellowship training in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine in Vancouver, six months of which was spent at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto to receive further training in Targeted Neonatal Echocardiography (TnECHO).
Dr. Ting’s main research interests fall into two aspects: (i) neonatal infections & antimicrobial stewardship; and (ii) small-for-gestational infants. He is interesting in conducting (i) population studies to understand their associations with predictive variables and neonatal outcomes; and (ii) targeted neonatal echocardiography studies to describe their haemodynamic changes to develop supportive strategies to these vulnerable infants.
