Andrew Prigge, MD, is a physician-scientist who specializes in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. He is an Instructor of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a Post-Doctoral Scholar in the Northwestern University T32 Training Program in Lung Science. Dr. Prigge’s research is focused on determinants of recovery from severe viral pneumonia in children. His research program integrates highly dimensional data from human samples with mechanistically driven laboratory experiments to understand how the pediatric immune system mediates resolution of inflammation and repair of lung tissue. His work seeks to inform the design of new therapeutics to hasten the recovery of critically ill children with viral respiratory infections.
