Research & Publications
Dr. McAdow received her MD and PhD in Microbiology from the University of Chicago. Her doctoral studies conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Olaf Schneewind investigated the interactions between Staphylococcus aureus virulence factors and the host coagulation cascade during the pathogenesis of bacterial infection. She came to Yale University for her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and stayed for fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine.
Dr. McAdow cares for patients with high risk pregnancies. She is the recipient of one of the inaugural Yale Physician Scientist Development Awards and a training grant from the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine and the American Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology Foundation. Her research, conducted in the laboratory of Dr. William Sessa in the Department of Pharmacology, investigates the molecular mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction in preeclampsia, a common complication of pregnancy that jeopardizes the health of the mother and fetus.
