Beth Tarini, M.D., M.S., assistant professor, Department of Pediatrics, says newborn screening is a complicated system in a race against time. "And if we lose the race, children can die from these disorders. If we can find affordable ways to make the system of newborn screening run the race faster, we can help save lives.
