Dr. Kristina Adams Waldorf

Dr. Adams Waldorf's work focuses on the prevention of preterm births. Infection is a frequent cause of early preterm births. Dr. Adams Waldorf studies the immune response within the mother, fetus and placenta and how this triggers preterm birth and fetal lung injury. She is also interested in what enables bacteria to invade the placenta and uterus in some women and how to identify women that might be at high risk for infection-associated preterm birth. Dr. Adams Waldorf is also involved in studying new drugs that might prevent or stop preterm labor. Her work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, March of Dimes, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, GAPPS/Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Washington State Obstetrical Society, University of Washington ITHS and Consano.
