Bio

Dr. Eniko Sajti is a board-certified pediatrician and neonatologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego an assistant professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

She received her medical and doctoral degrees from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. As an awardee of the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in pulmonary medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. After completing her pediatric residency and neonatology fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Boston Children's Hospital, she was recruited to UC San Diego Department of Pediatrics.

The Sajti lab's primary interests are to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling the development of the neonatal innate immune system. Current projects focus on determining the genetic and epigenetic signature of specialized innate immune cells in the neonatal lung and brain. To understand the relative contribution of various subtypes of innate immune cells to premature birth-related lung disease and impaired neurodevelopmental outcomes, Dr. Sajti employs genome-wide approaches and computational analyses to identify transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms unique to each cell type. By elucidating disease and cell-type-specific gene regulatory networks, she hopes to develop new targeted therapies tailored to the needs of individual patients.
