​​thumbnail_IMG_6978.jpgI am thrilled to announce that Dr. Teresa (Terri) Marin has been selected as the next Neonatal Editor of the Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing.

Dr. Marin is an internationally known and well-respected neonatal nurse scientist and neonatal nurse practitioner and is currently an Assistant Professor at Augusta University College of Nursing in Augusta, Georgia. She has been a nurse for over three decades, having received her BSN from the University of Tennessee, her MSN from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and her Ph.D. from Emory University.

Dr. Marin’s primary research focuses on identifying physiologic biomarkers that predict early-onset acute kidney injury in very low birth weight infants. Using near-infrared spectroscopy technology, she leads a multi-disciplinary research team to increase understanding of antecedent mechanisms that lead to end-organ tissue ischemia. She was named a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN) and a Fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (FAANP) for her exemplary leadership and outstanding contributions to neonatal research, education, and service. Due to her established expertise in neonatal research, she was the first nurse invited to join the international Neonatal Kidney Collaborative and the Southern Society of Pediatric Research. Dr. Marin’s work is internationally recognized through multiple peer-reviewed publications and invited national and international presentations.

I am very confident that the neonatal section of JPNN will be in very good hands.

For myself, it has been a pleasure serving as the neonatal editor of JPNN since 2016. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to make a small impact on the readership, and the nursing practice of perinatal and neonatal nurses around the world. I look forward to continuing to interact with this wonderful community in new ways, and will ensure a smooth transition of the neonatal editorship over the next several weeks, with Terri assuming the editorship in early 2023.

Thank you!

Katherine Gregory, PhD, RN, FAAN
