From the director’s desk: Engaging the community in health research

Traditional models of conducting translational research studies are changing. Investigators are expected to incorporate bi-directional approaches that integrate the voices of the community in tangible ways so that research projects—from the formulation of questions to the report of findings – are relevant to community members and other key stakeholders. Our hope is that these promising approaches will improve healthcare delivery, create more effective health policies, and alleviate community members’ oft expressed frustration with researchers who are “here today but gone tomorrow”.

Early predictor for preeclampsia

"The researchers believe this discovery will majorly impact obstetric care in rural and underserved communities. Determining very early that a pregnancy is going to be preeclamptic is significant, the researchers say, so doctors can help expecting mothers by heightening their awareness of significant symptoms of preeclampsia or if need be, transfer them to hospitals able to provide the appropriate, higher level of medical care."
