Dr. Nina Shapiro
Dr. Nina Shapiro, director of pediatric otolaryngology and a professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, is the co-editor of a new book, “50 Studies Every Pediatrician Should Know,” scheduled for May 31 publication by Oxford University Press.
Addressed to health care professionals and others who want to learn more about the data behind clinical practice, the book presents key studies that have shaped the current clinical practice of pediatrics. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover research in the areas of allergy immunology, cardiology, general pediatrics, infectious disease, neonatology and orthopedics, among a wide range of subjects. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study and its implications for practice. An illustrative clinical case concludes each review, followed by brief information on other relevant studies.

She has been honored with several prestigious awards, among them the American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology Charles Ferguson Award for Clinical Research, the UCLA Head and Neck Surgery Faculty Teaching Award and the American Academy of Pediatrics Young Investigators Award.
A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Shapiro is a sought-after expert in TV, print, web and radio outlets. She is a regular guest on the Emmy Award-winning TV show “The Doctors,” and her writing has been published in the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times and the Hollywood Reporter, among others.
