Description

Our research group aims to delineate perinatal and early neonatal inflammatory responses in health and disease. We have established longitudinal cohorts of infants with neonatal encephalopathy and preterm infants as well as neonatal controls in order to explore the role of early inflammatory changes and developmental outcomes. We have studied the role of activated monocytes and neutrophils in neonatal diseases and the use of immunomodulatory agents such as vitamin d and activated protein c.
