Director: Soumen Paul, Ph.D.

Mission:

Scientists in the Center for Organogenesis, Vascular and Perinatal Research seek to understand how maternal physiology and pathology impact fetal development and program postnatal health and disease. We foster multi-investigator research efforts through collaborative research, coordinating meetings and disseminating information. A major focus of the center is bridging basic science with clinical and translational research in the context of developmental, perinatal and vascular disorders and maternal health.
