Dr. Zupancic is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Associate Chief of Neonatology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. His research and consulting work seek to improve the efficiency with which scarce resources are used in improving the health of children, and in particular, newborns. He has focused on performing and improving the validity of economic evaluations alongside neonatal clinical trials and on the use of computer modeling to determine best practices when evidence is currently lacking or where empirical studies are infeasible. He is also involved in various epidemiologic and health services investigations, including the Neonatology Canon Project, a large-scale systematic review of all randomized controlled trials in neonatology over a 22-year period. Dr. Zupancic has served as Leader of the Value Initiative for the Vermont Oxford Network’s Neonatal Intensive Care Quality Improvement Collaborative and is Chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. His teaching and mentorship of fellows has been recognized locally through the Merton R. Bernfield Mentoring Award, awarded by the Harvard neonatology fellows, and nationally through the John M. Eisenberg Excellence in Mentorship Award, awarded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
