Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine


The Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is actively conducting studies in both clinical and bench research. Ongoing research activities are currently funded by the Center of Disease Control, the March of Dimes, and other national organizations facilitating national and international collaborative efforts. In addition, pharmaceutical industry sponsored research focusing on a variety of maternal-fetal issues is currently underway studying investigational drugs and devices. The Division is also engaged in collaborative efforts with the Division of Neonatology compiling a database of maternal-fetal records, and the State of Tennessee to provide outreach through collaboration. The Division is also working concurrently on research projects with investigators from the Department of Cardiology, the Department of Pediatrics, and College of Nursing, College of Anesthesia, and the Fogelman College of Business.
