Dr. Amy Murtha is a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Department of Pediatrics. After graduating from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1992 she completed her residency in Ob-Gyn and fellowship in Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) at Duke University then joined the faculty at Duke in 1998.
Currently Dr. Murtha serves as the interim Department Chair, Vice Chair for Research, Clinical Research Unit (CRU) Director for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, MFM Fellowship Director, and Program Director for the NIH-funded K12 training grant Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH). As a leader in research administration, Dr. Murtha has created an environment for the oversight of research in a way that is beneficial to the entire enterprise.
Dr. Murtha’s research career has focused primarily on preterm delivery and specifically on preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). As a clinician scientist, she has the unique perspective of understanding the clinical implications of both basic and laboratory research.
The Perinatal Research Initiative, led by Dr. Murtha and funded through philanthropic dollars, has allowed for growth in the size and scope of her lab. In addition to advancing the understanding of the etiology of preterm birth she has also focused on training the next generation of physician scientists in translational and molecular biology techniques with over 75 publications. Dr. Murtha uses her experiences and leadership skills to create an environment of supportive, collaborative, financially responsible research at Duke that aligns with the missions of the School of Medicine and the Duke University Health System.
