Maternal Fetal Medicine Research

Our Program

The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is engaged in clinical, basic bench, and epidemiological research as one of its primary missions.  Our strength lies in the expertise and diverse interests of our faculty and in the collaborations with multiple other disciplines and Departments throughout the School of Medicine, The Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the School of Biomedical Engineering. The strong research infrastructure of the Johns Hopkins University forms a solid foundation for the success of our integrated research program for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.

We have established Integrated Research Center for Fetal Medicine , Obesity in Pregnancy Research Program  and Physiology In Pregnancy Program.

Our research faculty participate in The Johns Hopkins Women’s Health Research Group, a collaborative network of researchers from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health.

Our research program now provides semi-monthly meetings (“Work in Progress/laboratory data” and “Research concepts”) to foster multi-disciplinary research through pilot programs and retreats.
