Prematurity Research Center - Imperial College London

In February 2018, the March of Dimes joined with Imperial College London to launch the first European Center and the sixth Prematurity Research Center in our network. This expansion of the PRCs demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm of accomplished scientists and physicians and faculty as they come together to discover the unknown causes  of premature birth.  The Imperial College London  team will collaborate with their counterparts in the U.S. as they pursue the challenging question of how the body recognizes and interacts with bacteria and other microbes in the birth canal that may increase the risk of  premature birth.
