Katherine Gregory, assistant professor of maternal child health at the Connell School, has been named the 2008 Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (CANS)/American Nurses Foundation (ANF) Scholar. This honor comes with a grant, given each year in all areas of nursing for nurse researchers to conduct studies that contribute toward the advancement of nursing science and the enhancement of patient care. Gregory’s research interests pertain to the feeding, growth, and development of preterm infants, and she will use her grant to continue this work, examining whether urinary biomarkers predict necrotizing enterocolitis in preterm infants. Necrotizing enterocolitis is a common problem in preterm infants and early detection could lead to much improved outcomes in this very vulnerable patient population.
