Trevor Burt, MD


Dr. Trevor D. Burt is a neonatologist, specializing in the care of critically ill newborns, including premature infants and newborns requiring intensive care such as those with birth and cardiac defects, surgical issues and genetic syndromes. He also treats babies who have difficulty or trauma before or during birth and those who require extracorporeal membranous oxygenation (ECMO) for cardiac and respiratory support.

In his research, he focuses on the immune system and its role in HIV and other chronic infections, as well as the development of immune systems and how they influence response to infection. Burt earned a medical degree at Harvard Medical School. He completed a combined internship and residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital Boston and Boston Medical Center and a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at UCSF.
