Donor Human Milk in VLBW Infants: Experience, Research, Future Directions
Available in:

Tarah Colaizy is a native Midwesterner, and attended undergraduate college and medical school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In an effort to see what else was out there, she completed her pediatric residency and her neonatology fellowship at Oregon Health & Sciences University in Portland, OR. During her time in Portland, Dr. Colaizy also earned an MPH degree in epidemiology, and became interested in breastfeeding and human milk as a research focus. Dr. Colaizy returned to the Midwest in 2004, as a faculty member of the University of Iowa. She has spent the past 11 years building a research career around breastfeeding and human milk nutrition issues in the very low birthweight population, with special focus in donor human milk. She is the Alternate Principal Investigator for the University of Iowa Center of the NICHD Neonatal Research Network, and is the PI of the MILK trial, a large multicenter randomized trial of the use of donor milk in ELBW infants. She loves playing games and reading with her two children and competes recreationally in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting.
