Kara Goss Lab

Our lab brings together a multidisciplinary group of researchers to study how premature birth affects the heart and lungs throughout life. This includes in-person studies in adolescents and adults who were born moderately to extremely preterm (<32 weeks gestation).

Born Preterm?

We are currently conducting studies on the long-term effects of preterm birth on the heart and lungs.

Dr. Goss's research career into the long-term effects of preterm birth began with a single question: a patient asked if her premature birth 54 years ago could have caused her current lung problems.

AJP-Heart and Circulatory Physiology Podcast

In this new episode of Behind the Bench with AJP-Heart and Circ, co-hosts Lisandra de Castro Brás and Charlotte Usselman interview Kara Goss about the fascinating study by Corrado et al. Admittedly inspired by her own experience as a mother to two children, both of whom were born prematurely, our producer Kara Hansell Keehan wanted to dig deeper into this latest work by Goss and co-authors.
