A Sub-Site to Brown University

Welcome from Dr. Christian Pettker, Principal Investigator

Welcome to the website of the Maternal Fetal Medicine Unit (MFMU) research network at Yale School of Medicine/Yale New Haven Hospital. We are excited to bring to Yale the resources and experience of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research consortium that involves all of the top medical centers in the country. Yale has become nationally known for high-quality clinical care. Joining the MFMU puts us at the forefront of obstetrics research that has the potential to lead to better pregnancy outcomes and healthier newborns. We hope that patients and clinicians will use this website to learn about our research activities and consider participating in work that gives access to the latest innovative practices and furthers knowledge in our field.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to know more.
