Eureka Institute for Translational Medicine
Through an alliance with the Eureka Institute in Translational Medicine, select Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) members have an opportunity to participate in focused training on the practical aspects of translating basic findings to clinical treatments, develop creative problem solving strategies and novel skills.
Quantitative Sciences Unit (QSU)
The Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) partners with the Quantitative Sciences Unit (QSU) in the Department of Medicine to provide comprehensive biostatistics and data management support, for research that is directly related to maternal and child health. This resource is available to all MCHRI members and their mentees.
Stanford Funcational Genomics Facility SFGF
In collaboration with the Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF), the Maternal and Child Hleath Research Institute (MCHRI) offers an Illumina Hiseq 4000. This instrument is a state-of-the-art high-throughput sequencing apparatus and has the capacity to run two independent 8-lane flow cells simultaneously. Members of the MCHRI have priority access on one of these flow cells. Special priority is given for sequencing of clinical research samples requested by MCHRI members. SFGF maintains and operates the instrument.
March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center
The March of Dimes and Stanford University created the nation's first transdisciplinary research center dedicated to identifying the causes of premature birth. Over 130 scientists in fields ranging from neonatology and genetics to computer science and artificial intelligence are pursuing a revolutionary model of "team science" to find answers.
