Personal profile

Biography

Dr Malhotra is a consultant neonatologist at Monash Newborn and research scientist at The Ritchie Centre, Hudson Institute of Medical Research. He holds a senior lecturer appointment in the Department of Paediatrics, Monash University and is the current recipient of a RACP Foundation Research Fellowship.

His clinical research interests focus on improving respiratory and neurological outcomes of high risk infants. He has been involved in a number of randomised clinical trials in neonatal conditions. He is keen on early neurodevelopment and recently established the early detection (for cerebral palsy) clinic for high risk neonates at Monash Children's Hospital. He is also a lead investigator of an NHMRC funded study on preterm neurodevelopment.

His basic science interests include understanding and treating brain injury related to high risk perinatal conditions. He has a special interest in fetal growth restriction and has conducted a number of preclinical and clinicial studies in this area.

He has been instrumental in the translation of a number of preclinical therapies from the laboratory to the clinic. He recently led a world-first trial of placental stem cells for chronic lung disease of prematurity. He has a special interest in regenerative cell therapies for neonatal diseases.

Dr Malhotra is passionate about education and is the Co-Chair of Monash Children's Hospital Simulation. He has also been running maternal and neonatal educational simulation programs in rural communities in India.
