Immune modulation of lung injury and inflammation 


Innate immune responses at the epithelial boundaries in preterm infants (lung, intestine) can be protective, but inflammatory responses may also cause significant damage. Necrotizing enterocolitis is a devastating, multi-factorial disease marked by intense inflammation, which may be related to changes in the intestinal microbiome combined with compromised perfusion. Dr. Nathan focuses on antecedent factors leading to necrotizing enterocolitis, and is interested in applying quality improvement methods to reduce the incidence of this major morbidity in preterm infants.
