Professor Abdel-Latif Mohamed is a certified and experienced Neonatologist with expertise in Paediatrics, Perinatal, and Neonatal Medicine. I have extensive experience in clinical epidemiology, evidence-based medicine and advanced statistical modeling and meta-analysis.

Working at Centenary hospital for Women and Children, Canberra Hospital, as the senior consultant Neonatologist I have come across many periods when both my formal training in Neonatology and experience were challenged. I believe in taking my work seriously as I understand the implications of having the future of a child at your hands. It gives me great inner satisfaction to know that I have been successful in facing up to most of them especially since my work involves little lives and perinatal health on a large scale from chronic disorders to common childhood health issues. I have a true grasp of all since I believe in research largely.

As a Professor of Neonatology at the Medical School, Australian National University, I'm a teacher, educator, and mentor for our future generation of medical doctors. My background also includes several years of research, supervising and mentoring 76 students and trainees, 3 PhD students and 15 Masters’ students. I have published widely in regional and international medical journals.


Research interests

My research interests include:

  1. Perinatal epidemiology including neonatal survival, neonatal abstinence syndrome and neurodevelopmental outcome
  2. Health service research including quality of care and outcome of neonatal intensive care units,
  3. Systematic reviews and EBM including non-invasive surfactant delivery methods.

I’m expert in clinical and epidemiological research design, data analysis and advanced statistical modelling. I have published widely in these areas in local, regional and international peer-reviewed journals.
