In 2001 the Obstetrics Maternal Newborn Investigation (OMNI) Research Group was founded by Dr. Mark Walker and Dr. Shi Wu Wen along with Ruth Rennicks White as the Research Program Manager. Through the similarity in their vision they quickly realized the opportunities for potential research and created a partnership to work towards the improvement of health for women during and after pregnancy.
The vision of OMNI is of a world-renowned perinatal epidemiology research group, whose efforts will benefit the health of pregnant women and of infants both nationally and globally.
The OMNI Mission Statement is one of fundamental dedication to the betterment of women’s health through research into the social, cultural, economic, environmental and biologic factors of diseases in pregnancy, infancy and childhood.
