Partnerships

In 2014, the March of Dimes teamed with Washington University in St. Louis to establish the March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center at Washington University in St. Louis, the nation’s third transdisciplinary research center dedicated solely to examining, identifying, and preventing the causes of premature birth.

This unique research and technology enterprise of program directors, co-investigators, and faculty members across Washington University in St. Louis, Texas A&M, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and University of Pennsylvania will collaborate, in partnership with the other Centers, to identify the causes of premature birth.
