Improving health outcomes for pregnant people and children
Through our Pregnancy and Child Health Research Center, we support and partner on research that addresses the well-being and health of pregnant people, children and families – including adolescents and young adults. Our work focuses on equitable health for parents and children across the life course. Our research aims to improve reproductive, perinatal and child health and to reduce disparities in these areas.
Vaccine safety and medication exposures in pregnancy and lactation
We study the safety of medications and vaccines during and after pregnancy to assess potential risks. A recent focus has been studying the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines in general, and when given during pregnancy.
