The Microbiome and Preterm Infant Development
Presenter: Professor Erika C. Claud
The preterm infant is vastly different from a full term infant, with many different needs including a requirement of completing development in the extra-uterine environment.
Much research has focused on the role of the microbiome in the specific preterm infant disease neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
This research seminar will present the work of Dr. Erika Claud to explore the role of the microbiome not only in NEC, but also I preterm infant growth and neurodevelopment.
