Researchers Look to End Infant Mortality
and Disabilities Resulting from Preterm Labor
s Todd Rosen, MD, chief, division of maternal-fetal medicine, articulates the turning points
of his career, including the switch to medicine after obtaining a bachelor's degree in engi-
neering from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, it becomes clear that he
returned to Rutgers in 2009 with a purpose, which in time could revolutionize one
of the nation's leading public health issues. Dr. Rosen is an expert in high-risk
pregnancies, and his passion is far more than bringing babies safely into the
world. He wants to stop bringing them into the world too early. This is why Dr.
Rosen joined the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive
Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School--to help find a way to pre-
vent preterm births.
