Kelle Moley, MD, has received a grant from the Children’s Discovery Institute to facilitate research among Washington University researchers on pregnancy, maternal-fetal interaction and pediatric diseases.
The project, the Women and Infants Health Specimen Consortium (WIHSC), will collect tissue samples such as cord blood and amniotic fluid from mothers and their infants and link them with a clinical database. Participants will be recruited from the Washington University Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Clinic and the Center for Advanced Medicine. This project is unique, Moley says, because individual mother-infant pairs will be followed before, during and after pregnancy.
