A novel mouse model was established to study how maternal nutrition, in particular, maternal high fat diet (mHFD) predisposes to necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and sepsis.
Mechanistic Insights on Fetal Immunity
Translational research unraveling the effects of maternal diet on offspring immunity and microbiome.
Dietary Metabolites and Innate Lymphoid Cells
We hypothesize that dietary metabolites are critical in directing in group 3 innate lymphoid cells (ILC3) development and can predispose preterm infants to development of pathology including NEC and sepsis.
