By integrating my studies of normal physiological changes in many organ systems with pathological changed seen during disease, I have -together with my students - developed experimental models that mimic global hypoxic-ischemic injury and brain haemorrhage leading to permanent disability in children. The neuroprotective effect of cooling newborns first presented in these models led to international clinical trials where we documented the same neuroprotective effect in humans that were cooled and this ...
