Pregnancy and Fetal Research

The physician-scientists in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine are finding new ways to prevent preterm birth and improve the health of mothers and their babies. Our pregnancy and fetal research includes everything from lab studies aimed at understanding fetal brain development to clinical studies that improve health outcomes for high-risk pregnant women.

The strength of our research program lies in the expertise and diverse interests of our faculty. We benefit from the collaborations with other disciplines throughout the school of medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The strong research infrastructure of The Johns Hopkins University forms a solid foundation for the success of our cohesive research program.
