New Penn Research Center to Investigate Preterm Birth

March-of-DimesNearly half a million babies are born prematurely each year in this country. Indeed, preterm birth is the most common and serious newborn health problem in this country. Now, thanks to a $10 million investment over the next five years from the March of Dimes, investigators in the Penn Prematurity Research Center will focus on decreasing that number by discovering the causes of preterm birth and developing new strategies to prevent it.

Driscoll, MD, chair of OB/GYN; Jennifer L. Howse, PhD, president of the March of Dimes; CEO Ralph W. Muller; and Anne Geddes, internationally renowned baby photographer, who specially created the photo of the newborn for the March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center initiative.
