The division is comprised of five full-time pathologists who are certified by the American Board of Pathology with subspecialty training in pediatric pathology; and one fellow in pediatric and perinatal pathology (as part of an ACGME-approved training program). The division combines a busy clinical service with academic/teaching responsibilities and clinical and basic science research.

Clinical Service

The division provides hospital-based services for examination of placentas and products of conception, as well as comprehensive fetal and neonatal post mortem exams. The Division of Perinatal and Developmental Pathology performs 4,000 to 5,000 examinations of placentas and products of conception per year, in addition to 200 to 250 perinatal autopsies. It also provides a consultative service for placentas and post mortem exams for hospitals in southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Connecticut.

The division is an integral part of the multi-disciplinary perinatology team at Women & Infants Hospital and the Fetal Treatment Program, a joint venture of Women & Infants Hospital and Lifespan - Hasbro Children's / Rhode Island Hospital .

Research

The division members are conducting clinical research projects focusing on various aspects of placental and fetal pathology. Current basic research, involving the molecular regulation of fetal lung development, has been funded by external grants including the American Lung Association.
