J. Wells Logan, M.D.

Associate Scholar

Dr. Logan completed his undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering at North Carolina State university, his graduate training at the Medical University of South Carolina, and his post-graduate training in Pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia. During his 6 years as a general pediatrician, he became increasingly interested in the care of infants with disabilities, many of whom were born very premature. After completing additional post-graduate training in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Duke University, he began a long-term collaboration with the Extremely Low Gestational Age Newborn (ELGAN) Study Group which has yielded several important contributions.


Dr. Logan’s academic career has taken him to East Carolina University, to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX, and to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH, where he is actively involved in the care of critically-ill newborns. He was recently promoted to Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine at The Ohio State University and is Associate Medical Director of Critical Care Transport at Nationwide Children’s. His clinical interests include optimizing the care of critically-ill newborns and his research interests have focused largely on the contribution of early postnatal illness-severity to brain-related disorders in extremely preterm infants. He is currently conducting an analysis of the relationship between early postnatal illness-severity and structural and functional brain disorders in children born extremely preterm.


Dr. Logan is happily married to a former neonatal nurse who enjoys raising her children and teaching ballet at Leap of Faith in Westerville, OH. Together they have 7 children and are actively engaged at Grace Polaris Church. A strong proponent of the Hippocratic Oath as originally intended, Dr. Logan enjoys writing and speaking on behalf of the defenseless, the infirm and the unborn, regardless of their age or stage of development.
