Placental Disorders Research

Our Placental Disorders Program doctors are also faculty members at Stanford Medicine. As faculty, they work to improve patient outcomes through research.

Their research includes looking at why some women have placental disorders and others do not. For example, some women have uterine scars that put them at higher risk for having a placental disorder, but one does not develop. Other women develop a problem, but have no apparent risk factors.

Our patients can consent for their blood samples, placental and uterine tissue specimens, and medical records to be used in our strictly confidential research efforts. This collection of samples and data will be used to help identify risk factors for placental disorders in future research.
