The Besner Lab at Nationwide Children’s aims to eliminate necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and its downstream consequences.
The Britt Lab studies mechanisms that contribute to corticosteroid insensitivity in airway diseases.
The Chen Lab examines pathways involved in vascular remodeling and smooth muscle cell proliferation, the pathogenic hallmarks of pulmonary hypertension.
The Nelin Lab’s focus is on inflammatory lung injury and the mechanisms leading to lung diseases, particularly bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).
The Pavlek Lab studies cardiac development in extremely preterm infants to better understand the impact of perinatal factors to improve clinical management and outcomes.
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.
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.
The Slaughter Lab aims to improve outcomes important to neonatal patients and their families through large patient-focused cohort investigations and randomized trials.
