Biography

Leandro Cordero, MD is Director of the Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine and a Professor of Pediatrics and Obstetrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. His research and clinical interests include arterial blood pressure monitoring prematures and bacterial airway colonization of mechanically ventilated infants. He has published more than 80 scientific abstracts and 100 manuscripts. As the Director of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine, he developed one of the nation’s finest programs in neonatology. Since 1984, he has been the director of a multidisciplinary antepartum care program serving approximately 400 high-risk pregnant patients per year. In 1996, he was recognized by the 121st General Assembly of Ohio for “outstanding professional achievement and for exceptional contributions to the field of neonatology.” In 2001, Dr. Cordero received the Faculty Teaching Award from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and, in 2004, the March of Dimes Lifetime Achievement Award for contributions toward improving maternal and infant health.
