Research Interests

Dr. Lain is the Director of Perinatal Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is the PI of the MOMI (Medical Outcomes of Mothers and Infants) Clinical Registry and Biospecimen Repository. The goal is to enroll all pregnant women who receive care at UK in MOMI to facilitate retrospective, ongoing, and future research.

In addition, Dr. Lain has several studies addressing the short and long term consequences of complicated pregnancy. Current studies are evaluating methods to increase postpartum follow-up of women with GDM, expanding the postpartum screening in women with GDM, and a cohort study evaluating annual cardiometabolic function in women with GDM. Studies employ non-invasive endothelial function testing utilizing digital artery pulse wave tonometry.

Other perinatal studies are examining the association with obesity with pregnancy outcomes and myometrial structure and function. Other endothelial function studies have evaluated digital artery tonometry in smokers during pregnancy and changes in function over pregnancy to postpartum.
