    Dr. Darios Getahun's current research interests include studies related to perinatal and child health issues, successive pregnancy outcomes, fetal origin of childhood diseases, asthma morbidity and mortality, and health disparities. He studies the heritability of adverse perinatal outcomes to examine the contribution of genetic and shared intrauterine factors. He is principal investigator on two NIH-funded grants which examine the impact of 1) elective induction of labor on perinatal outcomes, and 2) PBDEs (commonly used in flame retardants) on preterm birth.
