Author Information

Dr Michael Kramer completed most of his early schooling in Miami, Florida. He left Miami to pursue his undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago, then moved to Yale University, where he completed medical school, a residency in pediatrics, and a research fellowship in clinical epidemiology. Following his education and professional training, he moved north to accept a faculty position at the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montreal, Canada, where he spent his entire academic career of 42 years before his recent retirement as Professor Emeritus. He practiced clinical pediatrics for nearly 25 years, but most of his career has been devoted to research and teaching. Dr Kramer has published over 500 scientific articles and has won numerous national and international awards for his research. He has served as a member of expert committees of the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Institute of Medicine, and the Council of Canadian Academies. He helped establish the Canadian Perinatal Surveillance System in 1995 and from 2003 to 2011 was Scientific Director of the Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. In 2011, he was elected to Fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada. Dr Kramer's systematic review of the scientific evidence on the optimal duration of exclusive breastfeeding led directly to new infant feeding recommendations by WHO in 2001. His research on preterm birth helped draw attention to the role of labor induction and elective cesarean delivery as drivers of the rise in preterm birth from the 1980s to the early 2000s. That research contributed to obstetric guidelines to restrict provider-initiated early delivery, which have helped reverse that trend. Dr. Kramer was recently cited as among the most impactful 0.01% of the world's researchers across all scientific fields. Dr Kramer is married and has three children and five grandchildren. He plays violin and is an avid chamber musician. He also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including cycling, hiking, tennis, and skiing.
