Background

Dr. Abimbola Aina-Mumuney is an assistant professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics. Her areas of clinical expertise include high-risk pregnancy conditions and prevention of preterm labor.

Dr. Aina-Mumuney received her undergraduate and master’s degrees in chemistry from Harvard and Radcliffe colleges. She earned her M.D. from Harvard Medical School and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Henry Ford Hospital. Dr. Aina-Mumuney came to Johns Hopkins to perform a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine before joining the faculty in 2004.

Dr. Aina-Mumuney’s research interests include thrombophilia in pregnancy, preterm labor and cervical incompetence.  In 2009, she teamed up with Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering graduate students 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 Institutes 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 is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a member of The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine. She has served as a reviewer for several medical journals, including the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Clinical and Experimental Hypertension and Gynecologic and Obstetric Investigation. Dr. Aina has published numerous peer-reviewed research articles on preterm labor and perinatal disease. Dr. Aina-Mumuney also has an interest in education and often participates in the mentoring of residents and fellows.

Patents

Preterm Labor Monitor
Patent # US20150031976 A1 | 01/29/2015

A system, method and apparatus for monitoring uterine and/or cervical activity indicative of labor in a patient. The system includes a medical device and a data processor in communication with the medical device. The medical device includes a structural component, a first electrode attached to the structural component, and a second electrode attached to the structural component. The structural component is structured to be in contact with a cervical surface and a vaginal surface of the patient, such that said first electrode is in electrical contact with said cervical surface and said second electrode is in electrical contact with said vaginal surface. The first electrode is adapted to receive an electrical activity of the cervical surface and the second electrode is adapted to receive an electrical activity of the uterus through the vaginal surface. The data processor is adapted to process the electrical activity of the electrodes to detect contractions on a surface of the patient indicative of labor.
