UC Irvine investigators Dr. Patrick Wadhwa and Dr. Scott Bartell have been awarded a five-year grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to study biobehavioral processes in human pregnancy (2010-2015).

Dr. Wadhwa, a professor of psychiatry and epidemiology, and Dr. Bartell, an assistant professor of public health and epidemiology, are both scientific members of UC Irvine’s Genetic Epidemiology Research Institute (GERI)

GERI provides a unique environment whereby research scientists from diverse technical backgrounds come together to solve many of complex health problems that cannot be adequately explored without the collaboration of expert faculty from multiple academic disciplines.
