Bio

Dr. Steven Abrams is the Director of the Dell Pediatric Research Institute and a professor of Pediatrics at the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. He is a neonatologist and came to the Dell Medical School from Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. He was also a professor of pediatrics, director of the fellowship program in neonatal-perinatal medicine, and medical director of the Neonatal Nutrition Program at Baylor College of Medicine.

A graduate of The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he studied medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and was a pediatric resident at Akron Children's Hospital. He also had fellowships at the National Institutes of Health in nutritional research and Baylor in neonatology and in nutrition.

Clinically, his interests are in the growth of preterm infants and the use of specialized nutritional practices, including omega-3 fatty acids in the care of infants who have problems with intestinal function. He believes that achieving adequate growth safely in high-risk infants is a key aspect of neonatal care, and a multi-disciplinary approach is vital to meeting this goal.

Abrams is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, including its Committee on Nutrition, and the Society for Pediatric Research. He is also an executive committee member of the American Society for Nutrition's Medical Nutrition Council, and a former associate editor of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. He is a member of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee 2015, which advises the government on food programs.
