The Reproductive and Perinatal Epidemiology Program in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics is dedicated to research that will improve reproductive and pregnancy health. Reproductive failures and perinatal complications are prevalent, complex and have limited prevention and treatment options. This research program aims to increase the understanding of underlying mechanisms and multilevel risk factors of common reproductive/perinatal complications in order to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Examples of projects in this research area include:

Placental disorders of pregnancy

Sexually transmitted infections
