CHEO Discovery Minute
Premature birth is the leading cause of early childhood death worldwide and remains the major cause of disability in Canadian children. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia or BPD is a chronic injury to the immature newborn lung that arises in about half of survivors born extremely premature, leading to a high risk of death and long-term issues with breathing. Senior Scientist Dr. Robert Jankov received a Research Growth Award to begin to define the role of the protein thrombospondin in newborn lung injury. The Research Growth Awards are funded by community support through the CHEO Foundation.
