  • Ahmed, Mahmoud S.

    MAhmedMahmoud S. Ahmed, PhD 
    Professor
    Obstetrics and Gynecology

    The goal of our research program is to make more of the current medications available for treatment of the pregnant patient. This goal is achieved by two major projects namely, clinical and translational. The clinical is to determine the pharmacokinetics of the medication during pregnancy. The translational is to understand the role of human placenta in regulating fetal exposure to the medication throughout gestation.   Research

  • Kammala, Ananth


    Ananth Kumar Kammala PHD
    Assistant Professor
    Obstetrics and Gynecology

    My interest in research began as an undergraduate student in Pharmaceutical sciences while in the pharmacology lab recording smooth muscle contractions. However, it was not until I started my master’s in pharmacology that the desire to understand the basic mechanisms of drug actions and different phases of drug development took off. My passion was to establish pharmacokinetic parameters of ayurvedic formulations of the Indian system of medicine. Later, I had an opportunity with Traditional Chinese medicine at Hong Kong Baptist University. I have worked in Immunology to understand the mechanism of mast cells responses in Anaphylaxis and Allergic asthma at Michigan State University. Dr. Menon's Lab provided me with an amazing opportunity to establish the pharmacokinetic parameters for the exosomes which is a novel drug delivery system to treat preterm birth delivery. This research will allow for a better understanding of novel drug therapeutics which crosses the blood-brain barrier or blood-placenta barrier and provide the foundation for the development of novel therapies for preterm birth.

    Ramkumar Menon, PhD
    Professor
    Obstetrics and Gynecology

    Various projects in my lab are designed to understand the pathobiology of preterm birth. We study mechanism of fetal tissue aging, feto-maternal cell signaling using state of the art organ-on-chip technology and intercellular communication by extracellular vesicles (EVs). We are also conducting preclinical trials to reduce preterm birth risk using drugs delivered using EVs.  Research

    Our goals for the investigation is to examine preliminary safety and efficacy of bupropion sustained release (SR) to help pregnant women stop smoking. We are determining whether bupropion SR reduces cigarette craving and withdrawal symptoms during pregnancy. This research is necessary for development of medications to treat pregnant smokers. Research

    Lauren Richardson, PhD
    Assistant Professor
    Obstetrics and Gynecology

    My research focuses on bridging the gap between bench-to-bedside research by merging advanced engineering and biology concepts. The goal of my research is twofold. One, to utilize microfluidic devices to collect underutilized biological fluids for biomarker screening, and two, to develop novel organ-on-chip devices that physiologically recreate in utero organs and organ systems. These devices are primed to replace traditional research approaches, limit animal models for research, and speed up preclinical experiments to get the drugs to clinical trials at a much faster pace.
