Premies' Bacteria

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one out of nine babies in the U.S. is born prematurely.
Now the USF College of Nursing has received a $2.7 million grant to study DNA from babies’ stomach bacteria to see how premature birth affects their growth and development. We talk to the lead researcher on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
