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.
