Clinical Research

For Patients: Current pregnant patients have a unique opportunity to advance prenatal research! Watch the brief video below to learn more. Clinical trials of new therapies and treatment are often open to our patients. Please consult your clinical team for more information.

Patient care marches forward because of the continual pursuit of new ideas, new technologies, and new drug therapies that will successfully manage and, in some cases, cure disease. Research programs within Obstetrics and Gynecology include both basic science and clinical trials. Currently, we are exploring and making discoveries in the following areas of Obstetrics and Gynecology:

  • Clinical Ethics
  • Family Planning
  • Gynecologic Oncology
  • Immunology and Infectious Diseases
  • Infertility
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine
