Dr. Haneline received a B.S. from Ball State University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She received an M.D. from Indiana University School of Medicine followed by Pediatric Residency and Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship at the Indiana University School of Medicine.  She is the Edwin L. Gresham Professor of Pediatrics and serves as the Division Chief of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine.  Dr. Haneline is an established physician-investigator in the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research and conducts basic/translational research.  She has had continuous NIH funding since 1999. She was elected into the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the American Pediatric Society. She has served on 2 NIH study sections (Pregnancy and Neonatology and Molecular and Cellular Hematology) and serves in a variety of roles at national scientific meetings. She has published over 50 scientific manuscripts.  Dr. Haneline is a stem cell biologist whose research focuses on how adverse intrauterine environments impair the function of fetal stem and progenitor cells thereby enhancing risk for hematopoietic, pulmonary, and vascular diseases during childhood.
