2017 Emily S. Miller, MD, MPH
Dr. Emily Miller, Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University, is the recipient of the 2017 Foundation for SMFM Bridge Funding Award sponsored by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology Education Foundation. Dr. Miller’s project aims to understand the immunologic mechanisms that are associated with antenatal depression to ultimately understand the mechanisms that lead to adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes. She recently completed the Women’s Reproductive Health Research program and has an overarching career goal of becoming an independently funded translational physician-scientist with a focus on the impact of mood disorders on obstetric outcomes. Directly in alignment with the mission of the SMFM, this research holds promise to inform the development of novel treatments to avoid the maternal and neonatal complications of maternal depression.
