Dr. Georg Schmölzer is a clinician-scientist with a focus on fetal-to-neonatal physiology and neonatal cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He is the Director or CSAR (Centre for the Studies of Asphyxia and Resuscitation) at the University of Alberta. He is also a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Alberta. Dr. Schmölzer obtained his MD at the Medical University Graz in Austria and trained in Pediatrics and Neonatology at the Medical University Graz and The Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. He obtained his PhD at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, before completing a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship as a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta. Dr. Schmölzer research focuses on understand physiological changes during fetal to neonatal transition, improve diagnoses, mitigate risk, and improve survival and quality of life for newborns, use of emerging technologies during neonatal resuscitation, and examine how these physiological changes can be used to improve short- and long-term outcomes of newborn babies.
