Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make the difficult decision to pause grant funding for 2020. We know that our Research Grant funds much-needed areas of research within the fetal maternal medicine realm, and we are hopeful that we will be able to continue with the funding and support within the next year’s cycle.

Brianna Marie Memorial Research Grant
The mission of the Brianna Marie Memorial Research Grant is to improve health outcomes for pregnancies and infants affected by various fetal syndromes, with particular interest to fetal lung syndromes such as fetal hydrops. By stimulating and supporting interdisciplinary research from within the maternal/fetal medicine field focused on fetal lung issues, the Research Grant will subsequently improve successful fetal development and the overall health of the newborn(s).
The recipient of this year’s Brianna Marie Memorial Research Grant goes for a second time to Dr. Teresa Sparks and team at the University of California, San Francisco to further support the completion of your research project titled “Non-Immune Hydrops Fetalis: Toward a Precision-Based Approach.”
PAST GRANT RECIPIENTS
The Fetal Health Foundation Awarded the 2018 Research grant to Dr. Teresa Sparks and team at the University of California, San Francisco. They are working to understand the underlying causes of Hydrops.
Fetal Health Foundation Awards $50,000 Research Grant to Further Study Life-Threatening Fetal Lung Complication
The recipient of the 2017 Brianna Marie Memorial Research Grant, awarded annually by the Fetal Health Foundation (FHF), is a team led by Dr. Ali Gholipour of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The group’s focus will be on improved imaging for the prenatal prognosis of incomplete development of the lungs, a life-threatening complication that is associated with several fetal syndromes.
