Helping Hand of Los Angeles - The Miriam Jacobs Chair in Maternal-Fetal Medicine

  • OB/GYN-Maternal Fetal Medicine

The current research of Calvin J. Hobel, MD, focuses on the role of maternal behaviors, the environment and the genetic risk of both preterm birth and poor fetal growth. The research laboratory is studying the role of stress hormones on the risk of preterm birth and the search for resilience factors that may decrease the risk of preterm birth. Most recently, the research group is assessing Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy and its role in infection as a cause of preterm birth and also its role in insulin resistance in diabetic pregnancies.
