  Children’s National Doctors Discuss Research in Mice with NPR
January 23, 2014

Children’s National Health System’s Vittorio Gallo, PhD, and Joseph Scafidi, DO, of the Children's Research Institute, discuss their research in newborn mice, which found that a naturally occurring substance called epidermal growth factor appears to reverse a type of brain damage that’s common in very premature infants.

The research was originally reported in the journal Nature.
