Research Overview

Dr. Tom Jaksic's research focuses on the nutrition and metabolism of the pediatric surgical patient. His work encompasses basic science as well as translational and clinical studies, and often utilizes stable isotopes to quantify pertinent metabolic pathways. Recent endeavors include the validation of the serial transverse enteroplasty (STEP) bowel lengthening operation (developed at Children's), the use of intravenous stable isotopes to study hepatic function in children with intestinal failure associated liver disease, and optimizing protein balance in neonates on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

About Tom Jaksic

Tom Jaksic received his MD degree from Queen's University in Canada. He completed an internship and residency at the University of Toronto and fellowships at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and New England Deaconess Hospital.
