Professor Carl Bose’s research career has been devoted to performing multi-centre epidemiologic, efficacy, and effectiveness studies designed to understand perinatal and neonatal diseases and to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with these diseases. For the past ten years, he has been involved in global health research and education with the goal of discovering strategies to reduce mortality and improve the health of women and children in low resource settings. For example, as an investigator in the NICHD Global Network for Women’s and Children’s Health Research (GN), He participated in the sentinel First Breath Study which demonstrated the effectiveness of training new-born care providers in resuscitation and other aspects of essential newborn care. To add precision to their understanding of the causes of perinatal deaths, along with a junior colleague at UNC and GN investigators, Carl Bose helped develop and test a verbal autopsy tool. Recently, he investigated the antecedents of stunting of growth in infancy. He has been involved in the development and dissemination of programs sponsored by the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) whose aim is to increase the competency of providers of new-born care among providers in low resource areas. Professor Carl Bose now serves as a Global Health Advisor for the AAP.
