  • Research:
    The Good lab focuses on the intestinal mucosal immune response involved in the pathogenesis of a gastrointestinal disease affecting premature infants called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Utilizing a neonatal mouse model of NEC, combined with translational studies in infants, we are specifically interested in:

    • Determining the components of breast milk that are protective against NEC.

    • Understanding the signaling pathways that are involved in NEC development.

    • Predicting the infants at risk for NEC.

    • Comments. Any additional information you want to provide, such as, Full time summer work a definite possibility, students who are interested in getting an MD, PhD or combined MD/PhD preferred.
