Join Us For Our Monthly Discussion Series

At the Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi), we are breaking down the traditional silos around scientific research. We believe the most effective way to address the complex issue of prematurity is through meaningful collaboration grounded in community wisdom. This is why, each month, we bring together a wide range of investigators, public health officers, providers, trainees and community members to have a lively, multi-faceted discussion about a specific topic related to preterm birth. The events, called “collaboratories” (or collaborative laboratories), generate new ideas, collaborations and innovative approaches to preventing preterm delivery and improving outcomes for babies born too soon. Since their inception in 2015, Collaboratories have become a sought-after opportunity to disseminate research and grow awareness of preterm birth.

Pitch a Collaboratory

PTBi is now inviting stakeholders of all backgrounds to submit their ideas for new Collaboratory events taking place in 2020. Awardees will be provided all of the resources, and staff support needed to bring to life an important topic regarding preterm birth for their community. See our frequently asked questions for more information.
