Area of Special Interest: respiratory disorders of the newborn.

Dr. Jain's research is focused on elucidating the physiology of lung sodium and fluid transport, and on strategies to enhance lung fluid clearance, particularly in late preterm infants and those born by elective cesarean sections. He heads a NIH funded laboratory and is currently the PI on a R01 looking at regulation of alveolar fluid clearance.

Research focus:

Basic: Cellular mechanisms regulating the sodium channel activity in type I and II pneumocytes in the developing and mature lung, using patch clamp techniques to study single channel activity, and molecular biological tools to evaluate expression of epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) subunits.

Clinical: 1) Late prematurity and approaches to its management. 2) Cesarean sections and their impact on respiratory outcome
