Development of a Peripheral Blood Transcriptomic Gene Signature to Predict Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia 

Presented by Alvaro Moreira, MD

Director, Neonatal Regenerative and Precision Laboratory Director, Physician Assistant Neonatology Residency Co-Director, Neonatal Nutrition and Bone Institute


Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most common lung disease of extreme prematurity, yet mechanisms that associate with or identify neonates with increased susceptibility for BPD are largely unknown. Combining artificial intelligence with gene expression data is a novel approach that may assist in better understanding mechanisms underpinning BPD. Objective: Develop an early peripheral blood transciptomic signature that can predict preterm neonates at risk for developing BPD.
