Research at the Women's Medicine Collaborative

Medical Breakthroughs Begin with You

Information we learn through research helps us provide high quality, evidence-based care.

Our physicians are board certified and serve on the faculty of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Our team is actively involved in clinical research to be sure we are on the cutting edge of research findings to be able to provide evidence-based quality care and lead the way in advancing women’s medicine and improving the care of women with high-risk pregnancies. 

Providers at the Women’s Medicine Collaborative have been awarded industry sponsored and National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded grants to study a variety of health conditions.

Participation in research is always voluntary.

Studies Currently Recruiting at the Women's Medicine Collaborative

PRISM3 Study

This study is for individuals who have experienced multiple Clostridium difficile infections (C. diff or CDI). This study will compare the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of CP101, an experimental treatment in capsule form, which is derived from the stools of normal healthy donors who are highly screened, tested, and monitored in structured donation program, to placebo in adults with recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.

You might be eligible to participate if you are 18 years of age or older and have experienced multiple C. diff infections. Learn more.

Sleep and Light Therapy for Perinatal Depression

Researchers at Lifespan are conducting a study looking at whether adding light therapy and a prescribed sleep schedule to usual treatment for depression can speed recovery and prevent postpartum depression.

You might be eligible to participate if you are a healthy pregnant woman age 18 to 40 years old with a current diagnosis of depression. Learn more.

Sleeping For Two

Sleeping for Two is the first part of a research study being conducted at Lifespan that screens and identifies pregnant women who may be experiencing sleep problems. Based on your results, you may be eligible for other research studies. We are working to better understand how sleep problems might affect the health of your pregnancy, and how to prevent pregnancy problems for other women. Learn more.
