Current Studies

A central focus of our research program is racial disparities in preterm birth. We are also examining maternal factors such as stress and obesity during pregnancy and postpartum, which in turn affect health in infants and toddlers. Our research program is currently accepting applications for the research studies listed below.

In addition to our current research studies, several studies have been featured in press releases as a result of the research of our doctors and researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
