    Dr. Nitkin is an academic neonatologist with research interests on mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy to prevent and treat neonatal lung disease. He is currently site PI for an industry-funded Phase I clinical trial of MSC-derived exosomes to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia in extremely preterm infants. He is also involved with work on automating and modernizing the Center for Infant Pulmonary Disorders registry at CMH to facilitate future research projects across the division.
