Kriston Ganguli, MD, is a physician scientist who in addition to taking care of patients, has dedicated her research career to investigating preventive strategies for Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). This disease is one which occurs in premature infants, characterized by severe intestinal inflammation, leading to devastating intestinal necrosis.
Specifically, Dr. Ganguli is in the process of isolating and identifying secreted factors from particular bacteria which may have an anti-inflammatory effect in the premature infant's intestine.These factors may provide a possible preventive strategy against NEC in the future.
