BIRCWH Grants Awarded to Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics Faculty
Angie Child Jelin, M.D., and Carolyn Sufrin, M.D., Ph.D., faculty members in the Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, have been accepted into the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) program.
In 2000, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Research on Women’s Health created BIRCWH, a highly-selective career development program. Junior faculty, known as BIRCWH Scholars, are connected with senior faculty who share interests in women’s health and sex-differences research. Many BIRCWH Scholars move on to obtain independent NIH grant funding following their participation in the BIRCWH program.
As BIRCWH scholars, Drs. Sufrin and Jelin will use their grants to pursue research objectives in their declared areas of study. Dr. Sufrin will study pregnancy outcomes in prisons and jails, compiling national scale statistics on women who are pregnant while in custody. Dr. Jelin will study fetal genetic disorders, which will involve fetal imaging and genetic diagnoses, including whole exome sequencing.
