Gynecology, reproductive genetics, maternal fetal medicine, gynecologic oncology, contraception, and prenatal diagnosis are all areas of active clinical research. Our physicians and scientists have a long history of conducting innovative, cutting edge research, including the development of many of the prenatal diagnostic tools, such as chorionic villus sampling, and screening testing which are currently employed in standard clinical practice around the world.
