The March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative includes more than 100 faculty-level investigators, trainees and staff and is led by Louis Muglia, MD, PhD, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; Irina Buhimschi, MD, Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital; and Sam Mesiano, PhD, Case Western Reserve University.
Five key research themes are being pursued via transdisciplinary interactions that will generate new research hypotheses and techniques to prevent preterm birth.
