Research into the Microbiome of the Premature – VUmc and Harvard University
For 2020, our goal is to sponsor the pilot phase of a joint research project between AUMC/VUmc and Harvard Medical School about the microbiome (intestine) of prematurely born babies. The goal of the study is to determine how nutrition during the baby’s time in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) can be improved to support the development of the baby's immune system in the gut. Dutch Ph.D. student Alexandra Calor has started to work on the pilot under the supervision of Prof. Van Weissenbruch, and will move to Boston to the research lab of Dr. Stefania Senger, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School as soon as corona-guidelines allow.
