Brief description In Australia, over 20,000 babies are born prematurely every year. Over 430 of these babies will die in the neonatal period, while another 15,000 will suffer neonatal and/or lifelong morbidity. Forty seven percent of these neonatal deaths will be due to neonatal infections. This research aims to prevent such devastating loss through characterising aberrant innate immune responses associated with the development of neonatal infection and identifying factors that lead to this outcome.
