Our research using observational cohort studies and randomized controlled trials has been vital to answering many important questions and optimizing clinical practices to improve maternal and child health. The OMNI Research Group is recognized internationally for its expertise and success in running single and multi-site birth cohorts.
Our team, led by Dr. Darine El-Chaâr, recently received $800,000 from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to answer important questions about COVID-19 and pregnancy.
We are currently recruiting pregnant individuals for two COVID-19 research studies. Click on the images below to learn more about these studies.
