Last Week's FNNDSC Project Updates
The NIRS team started off the week with a study visit for the SCD study with one of their participants who is one year post gene therapy! They were able to see two kiddos from the IVH study for a neurosurgical and neurodevelopment follow up. The NIRS team also had another OR case for their Perioperative Cerebral Autoregulation study with the anesthesia team. The engineering team continues to put together new probes, most importantly for their study with the CURE team in Uganda.
The BabyMEG system was under maintenance and is now up and running. Patients are being scheduled to be scanned soon.
Landmark Department Move
The FNNDSC will be moving from the 7 East floor to the 6 East floor during the late April/early May timeframe. Move boxes and move labels have been distributed to your cubicles and offices.
As you come in to pack the content of your desk, please send Gauravi the name of the linux computer you primarily use.
It is recommended to purge papers and other items you do not plan to bring with you in the move.
If your group needs to move file cabinets, make sure all drawers are emptied except the bottom two drawers.
Please make sure to tell Gauravi if you have file cabinets that need to be moved, unless you have already.
Move labels should contain your First and Last Name, Department name (Newborn Medicine, FNNDSC), and new Desk #/Office # (Gauravi can supply you with this information).
Desk trash receptacles and personal printers should also be labeled to be brought to your new desk/office location.
Computers, monitors, keyboard bags, boxes and other supplies that cannot fit into a box and need to be moved should be labeled.
We are thrilled to announce that Georgios Ntolkeras, MD has matched for his residency with the BCH Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NDD) family! He will be starting NDD in 2023 after two years of pediatrics at Baystate.

Gauravi will be onsite this week on Monday, March 22nd.
