Abimbola Aina-Mumuney, M.D.

Assistant Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics

Abimbola Aina-Mumuney, M.D. completed a joint Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Chemistry from Harvard and Radcliffe College in 1993.  She then continued her education at Harvard Medical School where she obtained her medical degree in 1997.  After completion of her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Henry Ford Hospital in 2001, she came to Johns Hopkins to pursue a fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine.  Upon completion in 2004, she decided to join the faculty at Johns Hopkins University where she remains an active clinical researcher in the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine.

Her clinical duties are carried out primarily at the Howard County General Hospital where she, in collaboration with a fellow faculty member, was instrumental in establishing the Center for Maternal Fetal Medicine in 2007.  Her research interests are varied and include thrombophilia in pregnancy, preterm labor and cervical incompetence.  In 2009, she teamed up with Biomedical Engineering graduate students through the Center for Biomedical Innovation and Design to develop a new uterine monitoring system.  The students have established a start-up company, CervoCheck for which Dr. Aina-Mumuney now serves as clinical consultant.  With her assistance, they have been awarded numerous grants and awards from the Maryland Technology Development Corporation, the Technology Accelerator Fund, and the LifeBridge Health Entrepreneur Challenge.  Most recently, she was awarded a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development as Principal Investigator.  Their device has been patented and is currently being tested in an ovine model.

Dr.  Aina-Mumuney also has an interest in education and often participates in the mentoring of residents and fellows as well as giving lectures or precepting medical student education sessions.
