To extend discussions begun at the September 17-20, 2023 Global Pregnancy Collaboration (CoLab) Workshop, “Pre- and Peri- conceptional physiology and pathophysiology: Targets for innovative therapywe are continuing a discussion series on this topic to facilitate pregnancy health research.

 A second goal is to provide mentoring in topics important to career development for beginning investigators. We will also facilitate the development of collaborations. Although there is no charge, donations are welcome.

The webinars will be held on the third or fourth Thursday of each month from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time/EST (US and Canada).

CoLab will facilitate virtual small group interactions of investigators wishing to further pursue the presented topics. A mentor and administrative support will be provided by CoLab to facilitate the initiation of these interactions among research groups at no cost. For more information pleasecontact Margaret Armstrong at

As an integral part of our virtual workshop series, we provide presentations to guide beginning investigators, especially in low-resource centers, toward successful research careers. The presentation will use a panel discussion format with CoLab investigators at several career stages to address the vitally important topic of mentoring. This will be directed at individuals seeking a mentor and also those embarking on their early career as mentors. Special considerations of “long distance mentoring”, particularly relevant to low resource settings, will be included.

This is one of several CoLab approaches toward facilitating pregnancy research through collaboration and sharing of data, ideas and biological samples. We are particularly committed to achieving these goals in low-resource settings. Towards this end we have 16 centers from low-resource areas. Specifically, CoLab investigators work with investigators from these low resource centers to obtain external funding and assist as advisors on funded projects. Thus far we have generated more than $2 Million in external funding for these centers.

Access to our webinars is free, but we encourage users to consider becoming a member or making a donation.
