Dr. Meinzen-Derr has a prolific publication background in the areas of health outcomes and clinical care for children who are deaf / hard of hearing and developmental disabilities. She is focused specifically on understanding the mechanisms behind language and functional outcomes in the subset of children with hearing loss who also have an additional developmental disability. In addition to hearing and deafness research, Dr. Meinzen-Derr collaborates on clinical research regarding premature infants. She currently teaches courses as part of the Clinical Research Training Program at the University of Cincinnati, Department of Environmental Health and supports the educational curricula for fellow research education within the Divisions of Neonatology, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, and Pediatric Otolaryngology. She contributes to the biostatistics and epidemiology modules of the Pediatrics Fellowship Core curriculum and leads the experimental design lectures in neonatology and developmental and behavioral pediatrics. She has developed an online curriculum for the graduate program in biostatistics and epidemiology in the Department of Environmental Health and for the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training.
