Takanori Ochi, M.D., Research Fellow

His interests include understanding how total parenteral nutrition (TPN) administration and enteral nutrient deprivation lead to immunologic changes in the intestinal mucosa. He also will pursue the investigation of how these changes affect gut microbiome. This knowledge will further his ability to care for patients at home in Japan, where his future goals include completing pediatric surgery residency and becoming an academic pediatric surgeon.
