BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Michael Msall, M.D., UB associate professor of pediatrics and rehabilitation medicine, has been elected to membership in the Society for Pediatric Research, a national organization for accomplished academic pediatricians.

Membership is based on research record, sponsorship by members in one’s specialty area and a vote by the full membership.

Msall’s research has focused on the problems and consequences of extreme prematurity and functional independence in children with Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy and neurodevelopmental disabilities.

His work was published recently in Clinical Pediatrics and will appear in the February issue of the Journal of Perinatology. He was been invited to present his research on functional independence at The John’s Hopkins medical institutions in March.

A member of the UB faculty since 1987, Msall also is chief of developmental pediatrics and rehabilitation medicine at Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and the Robert Warner Rehabilitation Center.

He lives in North Buffalo.
