Director, Neonatal Neurocritical Care Services

Dr. Hannah Glass is a pediatric neurologist, founding co-director of the UCSF Neurointensive Care Nursery (NICN) and director of Neonatal Neurocritical Care Services at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. She is also program director of the neonatal neurology fellowship program. Glass joined the Division of Child Neurology at UCSF in 2006. She earned a medical degree at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and completed pediatrics training, a child neurology residency and chief residency at the University of Calgary. She trained in neonatal neurology and earned a master's degree in clinical research at UCSF.

Glass specializes in brain-focused care for children with a variety of neurological conditions diagnosed in the newborn period, including hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, stroke and seizures, as well as brain injury following preterm birth. Glass sees children during the neonatal period, as well as through childhood. She provides comprehensive evaluation for children with newborn brain injury in the Neonatal Neurology Follow-Up Clinic.

Glass conducts research that uses advanced imaging and brain monitoring to predict outcomes following newborn brain injury. She has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, March of Dimes and the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Foundation.
