New Preemie Research Center To Open At UPenn

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Dec 03, 2014

Premature birth, babies born before 37 weeks, can cause serious health problems for the half a million babies born early every year in the U.S. Health risks for premature babies include cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, vision and breathing problems, and hearing impairment. There are many different factors that can lead to preterm birth, but most of these factors are poorly understood. Further research is clearly needed to help better understand the causes of premature birth to lead to preventative methods. The March of Dimes Foundation of Philadelphia recently announced that it will donate $10 million over five years to establish a new Prematurity Research Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
