Dr. Wozniak is a clinical pediatric neuropsychologist at the University of Minnesota whose research is focused on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. He co-directs the University's FASD Program. Dr. Wozniak conducts advanced neuroimaging studies in FASD in conjunction with the University's Laboratory for Neuropsychiatric Imaging, where he directs the neurocognitive section. Dr. Wozniak's research group is part of the Collaborative Initiative on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (CIFASD) and is involved in CIFASD's ongoing multi-site imaging, neurobehavioral, genetic, and facial dysmorphology projects.

In addition, Dr. Wozniak is currently conducting the first randomized controlled trial of choline supplementation in children with FASD – the goal of which is to develop a treatment for the neurodevelopmental aspects of the disorder. Dr. Wozniak and his University team work closely with their colleagues in the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) to inform the state's residents about the dangers of prenatal alcohol exposure, to educate physicians and other professionals about identifying affected individuals, and to broaden the reach of the state's formal FASD diagnostic programs.
