Dr. Zupancic is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Associate Chief of Neonatology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. His research and consulting work seek to improve the efficiency with which scarce resources are used in improving the health of children, and in particular, newborns. He has focused on performing and improving the validity of economic evaluations alongside neonatal clinical trials and on the use of computer modeling to determine best practice when evidence is currently lacking or where empirical studies are infeasible. He is also involved in various epidemiologic and health services investigations, including the Neonatology Canon Project, a large-scale systematic review of all randomized controlled trials in neonatology over a twenty-two year period.

Dr. Zupancic has served as leader of the Value Initiative for Vermont Oxford Network’s Neonatal Intensive Care Quality Improvement Collaborative and is the Chair Elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Perinatal Pediatrics. His teaching and mentorship of fellows has been recognized locally through the Merton R. Bernfield Mentoring Award, awarded by the Harvard neonatology fellows, and nationally through the John M. Eisenberg Excellence in Mentorship Award, awarded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
