Research Interests

  • Our lab is focused on understanding mechanisms by which maternal infections contribute to adverse pregnancy outcomes and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Using novel animal models, we examine the roles of specific microbial factors and the ensuing host immune response to the development of intraamniotic infection, stillbirth, preterm delivery, and neonatal sepsis.
