STEVEN J. MCELROY, MD

Assistant Professor, Pediatrics
University of Iowa
Iowa City, IA, USA

Dr. Steven McElroy is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics – Neonatology, and an Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Iowa. His current research and work focus is on the mechanisms of gastrointestinal epithelial cell injury and repair during development, especially as it relates to neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). The long-term goal is to better understand how different gastrointestinal developmental stages differ in their response to inflammation, and specifically the mechanism by which immaturity of the small intestine predisposes development of NEC. His laboratory developed a novel model of NEC [in mice] that uses Paneth cell ablation to induce intestinal pathology that is consistent with human NEC.
