Webinar with Dr. Ruma

This Webinar with Dr. Michael S. Ruma addresses current trends in the management of preterm birth,
“Preterm Labor: The Role of Protocols and Standardization to
Achieve Success.”

He will answer the following key questions:
What is the evidence-based data on methods for evaluation of the
patient with preterm labor symptoms? How does understanding the
success of protocols and standardization in other industries influence similar efforts in labor and delivery?If you had tools to develop and integrate a protocol-based
evaluation of the patient with preterm labor symptoms, how could
you utilize it at your own institution?

2014 Preterm Birth International Collaborative (PREBIC) Annual Meeting

Hologic is proud to support the 2014 Preterm Birth Prevention Workshop, taking place on March 31, 2014 through April 2, 2014, in Geneva Switzerland at the World Health Oganisation Headquarters.  

Each year, PREBIC brings together scientists, clinicians and clinical academics from around the world to focus on the problem of preterm birth. This group of dedicated collaborative members identify gaps in the current knowledge base, and devise ways of addressing these areas for improvement. During workshops, collaborative members focus on key areas such as genetics, bio-markers, and systems biology. The consortium aims to draw upon the multinational resources available through it’s members, develop global partnerships, and foster multinational projects to address the global problem of preterm birth.

This year’s workshop is focused on developing protocol to fill knowledge gaps in the following areas; epidemiology, pathways, genetics and epigenetics, animal models of pregnancy, systems biology science in pregnancy, microbiome and biomarkers of pregnancy and global prevention strategies in preterm birth.

Faculty includes:

Mario Merialdi, MD, PhD, Program Officer WHO

Ramkumar Menon, PhD university of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX

Leslie Myatt, PhD, UT, San Antonio

David Olson, PhD, University of Alberta, Canada

Craig Pennell, MD, PhD, University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia
