Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Ian M. Paul is Professor of Pediatrics and Public Health Sciences at Penn State College of Medicine. Dr. Paul is a general pediatrician and clinical and health services researcher with principal interests in primary preventive interventions for newborns, infants, and families; and clinical therapeutics for children. His research focuses on these two areas, with the largest current NIH/NIDDK-funded projects focusing on the prevention of childhood obesity through home-based interventions delivered to parents of infants. His work in this field includes the first study to demonstrate that behavioral interventions delivered in the months after birth can lead to slower weight gain through the age of 1. He has also been funded by HRSA/MCHB on projects related to newborn weight loss and breastfeeding, research that generated the first nomograms depicting newborn weight loss for exclusively breastfed and exclusively formula-fed term neonates during the birth hospitalization and through the first month after birth. Dr. Paul is and has been a co-investigator on numerous NIH-funded projects related to co-parenting, infant sleep, prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome, prevention of adverse pregnancy outcomes and the treatment of asthma, the latter through participation as a co-investigator on the NHLBI-funded AsthmaNet network. Dr. Paul is also an internationally recognized expert on the pediatric treatment of the common cold and its symptoms, having led numerous investigations related to cough/cold medications and antipyretics. A clinician as well, Dr. Paul has a thriving general pediatric practice where he provides medical care for children from birth through age 21. He has been recognized several times for superior patient satisfaction. In addition to his research interests, he is also Chief of the Division of Academic General Pediatrics in the Department of Pediatrics at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
