About the IPHRC

The central mission of the IPHRC is to develop a network of perinatal care providers and public health professionals working to improve the health outcomes of children born low birth weight (LBW) and/or preterm through innovative and multidisciplinary research initiatives.

We are a team of researchers and clinicians invested in research on exposures in the perinatal period that impact the health of children born in Iowa. Our team includes individuals with expertise in neonatology, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, and epidemiology.

We will accomplish this by focusing on three areas as follows:
