The preterm infant is completely dependent on the nutritional practices provided to them while in the neonatal intensive care unit not only for growth, but also to receive the essential immunonutrients and nutritional building blocks to continue organ development and establish their innate immunity.
Increasingly, nutrition scientists are establishing the pervasive health consequences of nutritional inputs from genes to metabolic products, including the microbiome. However, how these pathways impact the preterm infant and their ongoing development outside of the womb is largely unknown. This scientific gap has resulted in minimal innovation in specialized nutritional products for the preterm infant.
Our lab seeks to understand how our nutritional practices impact health, growth, and development to minimize later sequelae of preterm birth and maximize long term outcomes.
Currently our primary focus is in the role of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in these processes. Central to these investigations is a clinical biorepository from over 500 infants enrolled with archived longitudinal biological samples; and, several small and large animal models recapitulating neonatal disease processes. Our translational research program in newborn medicine allows for rapid assessment of mechanisms and the testing of potential therapies that can be brought from the bench to bedside.
Depending on the background and training of the student, projects can be tailored to meet their interests along the spectrum of translational research.
