Palette Life Sciences

In this episode of The PedSpace, Dr. Christopher Cooper explains how gut microbiota plays an important role in many aspects of health, including weight. He describes how antibiotic usage can adversely impact the gut microbiota and challenges listeners to think carefully about the potential long-term side effects of antibiotics.

Dr. Cooper's research focuses on the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of fetal genitourinary anomalies and pediatric bladder dysfunction. Over the last several decades, his research studies have concentrated on the decision making process for treating children with VUR. Dr. Cooper and his colleagues have developed several computational models to predict VUR outcome in order to provide more individualized management of patients with VUR.
