  • Faculty Candidate Susan Braid - Scholarly Presentation
  • May 07
  • Susan Braid, DrPH, MPH, MSN, NNP-BC, RN
    Assistant Professor
    The University of Maryland School of Nursing

    Scholarly Presentation:

    "Epigenetic Studies using Umbilical Cord Blood:  What is the Impact of Cell Composition"

    Dr. Susan Braid is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing and a practicing neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) at the University Of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore City.  She earned her BSN from Boston College, MSN in perinatal nursing NNP track from the University of Pennsylvania, MPH from Columbia University, and DrPH from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. 


    Susan is a perinatal epidemiologist and BIRCWH scholar who is currently training as an epigenetic epidemiologist. She was the first nurse to be named a BIRCWH scholar at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Her research seeks to understand how the environment in utero can influence the fetal epigenome and infant growth and how to develop clinical management practices that consider epigenetic variations in infants.  Susan is currently exploring the potential benefits of using umbilical cord tissue as compared to whole blood for epigenetic studies.  She has presented her research at both national and international meetings including Eastern Society for Pediatric Research, Pediatric Academic Societies, and the Wellcome Trust Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference in Cambridge UK.


    Ultimately, Susan’s goal is to identify biomarkers in umbilical cord tissue that will identify infants at risk of abnormal growth so that nutritional interventions can be initiated before growth issues are identified.
