  • Nutritional effects on gut development, microbiota, and growth: Using preterm pigs as a model of preterm infant to study how nutritional interventions, e.g., human milk fortification, heat treatment of infant formula, affect gut maturation and health, microbiota, and protein metabolism.
  • Gut dysmotility in necrotizing entercolitis
  • Effect of necrotizing entercolitis and systemic infection on the developing brain: Using transcriptome and label-free proteomics technology to identify early biomarkers of brain damage in cerebral spinal fluid and investigate how early infections change hippocampal gene and protein profiles and function.
