Join in person in Ward 236B to hear from guest and Dr. Perrie O'Tierney-Ginn, executive director of the Mother Infant Research Institute at Tufts Medical Center, a world-renowned academic medical center in Massachusetts. 


The overall goal of Dr. O’Tierney-Ginn’s research is to understand how placental function is altered by the maternal environment, and how these changes affect fetal growth and fat deposition. This important area of investigation elucidates mechanisms by which babies’ growth in the womb (organ development, fat accrual, lean tissue growth) can modify their metabolism, cardiovascular function, neurological development, and their risk of future disease.
