After her pediatric gastroenterology training, Dr. Grzywacz completed a fellowship studying the effects of probiotics and lactoferrin on the intestinal microbiota of premature infants as well as their effects on an animal model. Since completing a Masters in Biochemistry, she has worked full time as a pediatric gastroenterologist at Sainte Justine. Dr. Grzywacz has continued my research on the intestinal microbiome while collaborating with McMaster University and Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, on projects related to the intestinal microbiome of children and adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease.
