The goal is to improve the nutrition delivered to preterm infants through pasteurized human donor milk and inform evidence-based guidelines within donor milk banks.

Perrin received her bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Purdue University and a master’s of business administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – and completed her PhD in nutrition science from North Carolina State University.
