Available Projects

  • There is very little known about the lymphatic function of premature babies. We have shown in our preterm piglet model that there are substantial reductions in lymphatic flow over the first day of life. This project will investigate how clinical management strategies influence flow rates with a view to develop novel interventions to reduce the high rates of disability in this vulnerable population.
