Center for Perinatal Research

The Center for Perinatal Research has a unique, integrative approach to prematurity research that extends before and after birth. Its mission is to conduct innovative basic, translational and clinical research focused on prevention of preterm birth and achieving the best possible outcomes for all children, especially those born preterm.

In close collaboration with Neonatology and other groups, the principal investigators in the Center for Perinatal Research study prevention and reduction of complications of prematurity including infection, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, pulmonary hypertension, cystic fibrosis, asthma, feeding disorders and neuro-developmental delay such as cerebral palsy. Our laboratories use state-of-the-art molecular, basic science and translational approaches to understand the causes, mechanisms and consequences of being born too soon.
