AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What characteristics distinguish a healthy maternal pregnancy-microbiome from one that experienced microbial perturbations?

This study will focus on a subsample of all pregnant women and follow them throughout pregnancy to obtain serial assessments and measurements, including laboratory microbiologic evaluation testing of oral, skin and vaginal specimens. Follow-up would end at delivery of the infant; serial pregnancies would be eligible to re-enroll. Assessments and measures would be used along with health outcomes to determine associations and develop predictive models.
