Our Labs

Besner Lab

The Besner Lab at Nationwide Children’s aims to eliminate necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and its downstream consequences.

Britt Lab

The Britt Lab studies mechanisms that contribute to corticosteroid insensitivity in airway diseases.

Chen Lab

The Chen Lab examines pathways involved in vascular remodeling and smooth muscle cell proliferation, the pathogenic hallmarks of pulmonary hypertension.

Liu Lab

The Liu Lab studies inflammation, immunity, sepsis and more using both animals and cells.

Nelin Lab

The Nelin Lab’s focus is on inflammatory lung injury and the mechanisms leading to lung diseases, particularly bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).

Pavlek Lab

The Pavlek Lab studies cardiac development in extremely preterm infants to better understand the impact of perinatal factors to improve clinical management and outcomes.

Reynolds Lab

The main focus of the Reynolds Lab involves elucidating the mechanisms involved in airway epithelial tissue repair using mouse models and human cell cultures to pave the way for the eventual use of human tissue stem cell therapy to treat cystic fibrosis and other forms of chronic lung disease.

Rogers Lab

The Rogers Lab aims to better understand the pulmonary and cardiac complications of premature birth and develop treatments to decrease morbidities in prematurely born infants.

Slaughter Lab

The Slaughter Lab aims to improve outcomes important to neonatal patients and their families through large patient-focused cohort investigations and randomized trials.

Trittman Lab

The Trittman Lab has discovered genetic and biochemical markers for BPD-PH.
