Dr. Misty Good is a neonatologist-scientist and the Division Chief of Neonatology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Good’s laboratory combines innovative, precision medicine bench-to-the-bedside approaches focused on necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a devastating intestinal disease that primarily affects premature infants. She is the founder and director of the NEC Biorepository, which is the largest biorepository of samples from preterm neonates in the United States and is a collaborative effort of 10 institutions across the country. Dr. Good’s long-term goal is to combine basic science and translational research to inform the development of clinical treatments to prevent and cure NEC altogether. In addition, Dr. Good is committed to fostering the development of the next generation of pediatric physician-scientists and leads national efforts to support and retain early-career scientists.
