Chao, Conrad Professor


As the Chief of Maternal and Fetal Medicine, I am committed to serving the patients, trainees, and community of the University of New Mexico through my work in clinical care, education, research, and community service. With the support of our department and hospital we are building a network of high-risk pregnancy outreach clinics and strong tertiary clinical perinatology and imaging resources in Albuquerque to better serve the women of New Mexico. We continue to develop our robust training programs in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Maternal and Fetal Medicine for trainees at all levels. In research we are building on our strengths in clinical care and consultative ultrasound as well as in translational work in novel approaches to fetal assessment, pathophysiology and therapy of preeclampsia, placental aging and telomere pathology, and substance abuse. Finally, our division seeks to leverage our community resources and support to develop a strong statewide regional perinatal care network that will optimize pregnancy outcomes for our diverse population.
