Our investigators are at the forefront of clinical and translational research to understand, predict and prevent preterm birth using cutting edge tools ranging from microbiome analysis to novel cervical imaging and studies of electrical activity of the uterus.
Since 2014, the team at Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children’s Hospital has maintained a focus on Prematurity Research finding novel ways to predict and prevent preterm birth. We have many exciting projects in the works we look forward to sharing! In the meantime, please click the link below for some of the amazing work of our investigators
