"The mission of the Perinatology Research Branch is to conduct clinical and basic research in perinatal medicine and related disciplines with the goal of developing novel diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive strategies to reduce adverse pregnancy outcome, infant mortality and handicap as well as to provide research training for physicians, scientists and other health care professionals whose aim is to improve the health care of mothers and their children."

Being part of the Perinatology Research Branch provides us all with the unique opportunity to improve our own lives by improving the lives of others. We get to do this in an intellectually stimulating environment, working with state-of-the-art technology, and living in a vibrant, dynamic and beautiful part of the world. This is why we regard our work to be not merely a job, or even just a career. It’s an exciting, demanding, and uniquely rewarding mission, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
