Researcher | Research Overview

Dr. O'Connell is the lead investigator in the Neonatal intestinal and immune Center for Exploration (NiiCE). Our lab is focused on understanding development of the neonatal and infant intestine and immune system under normal and disease conditions. Conditions we study in the lab include premature intestinal disease including necrotizing enterocolitis, immune function of the neonate, and genetic orphan diseases. Our lab also aims to foster inclusivity and equity in research.
