Even though his last name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled, his patients find it easier to call him “Doctor W”.

Common probiotic no help to young kids with stomach virus
Children with stomach viruses increasingly are given probiotics to ease symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea. But a major U.S. study led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that a commonly used probiotic is not effective in improving symptoms in young patients with gastroenteritis. The findings are published Nov. 22 in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Jennifer Silva, MD, is an innovator and entrepreneur with heart — literally.
As a pediatric electrophysiologist at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Silva treats children with abnormal heart rhythms. In partnership with her husband, Jonathan Silva, PhD, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at the School of Engineering & Applied Science, she has co-founded a startup that is developing technology to enable doctors to see real-time 3D holograms of the heart during cardiac procedures.

Fighting the spread of infectious diseases like malaria with better, faster, more nimble diagnostic tools
Audrey Odom John, MD, PhD, is on a mission. John, associate professor of pediatrics and of molecular microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is fighting the spread of infectious diseases like malaria with better, faster, more nimble diagnostic tools. Malaria kills 445,000 people a year, most of them young children in sub-Saharan Africa, a rural, underdeveloped area where better diagnostic tools are needed most.
