Videos of each topic discussed at our Launch Conference in October are now available.
Each speaker had five minutes or less to do three things: 1) Describe the main problem they are working to solve, what they have done so far to solve it, and what they would like to do in the future. 2) Tell the audience how working to solve the focal problem fits with the mission of the Center for Maternal-Fetal Precision Medicine. 3) Tell the audience what opportunities for collaboration will develop as the work moves forward.
