IMPORTANT POINTS & DISCOVERIES
- Demonstrated that the human placenta does not have a microbial signal beyond that also evident in background technical controls in typical pregnancies.
- Efficaciously characterized the molecular microbiology of the human upper genital tract outside pregnancy and demonstrated that the endometrium is not dominated by Lactobacillus, as has been widely reported.
- Showed that the majority of bacteria associated with intra-amniotic infection ascended into the amniotic cavity from the lower genital tract.
