Dr. Grigsby's research program has evolved through expanded multidisciplinary collaboration among clinician scientists with neonatology and pediatric specialties and basic scientists with expertise in microbiology, reproductive immunology, pathology and cardiovascular physiology. In this regard, her field of research has expanded from preterm birth studies to now include studies on placental development and fetal growth. This research initiative seeks to understand the ability of the developing placental to respond to an adverse in utero environment and to determine the mechanisms underlying placental plasticity which are at the root of the Developmental Origins of Adult Disease phenomenon.
