March of Dimes, whose mission is to give every baby a healthy start, has launched an exciting new research program in partnership with Stanford University School of Medicine, one of the premier research institutions in the world. This video demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm of some of our renowned medical and biological researchers who are embarking on a unique transdisciplinary approach to put an end to premature birth.

Uniquely situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University has played a leading role in driving the extraordinary scientific and technologic innovation that exists in the region. Stanford is one of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions. It is committed to setting the highest standards for patient care, ground-breaking biomedical research, professional education, teaching and training.

The March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center at Stanford University functions as a “virtual’ center. Rather than funding bricks and mortar, our efforts are dedicated to investigate a set of highly-focused questions designed to produce important new insights and are led by renowned researchers in teams.
