About

We partner with pediatrics and OB/GYN leaders and experts to conduct clinical trials and observational studies to support the health and well-being of pregnant people, children and adolescents. Areas of focus include the safety of medications and vaccines in pregnancy, maternal mental health, and adolescent risk behavior screening.
