Faculty Research


Dr. Anne Marie Jukic is a perinatal epidemiologist whose research focuses on risk factors for sub-fertility and poor pregnancy outcomes. She is interested in early pregnancy, particularly implantation and early placental development, and the relevance of these events for pregnancy health or even child health. After completing a Bachelor's degree at the University of Notre Dame she joined the Peace Corps where she developed an interest in public health. During her graduate work at Emory University she trained at the Centers for Disease Control in the Safe Motherhood Branch. She continued her graduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she completed her PhD and worked at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). During her post-doctoral fellowship at NIEHS she successfully competed for a K99/R00 grant to examine the role of vitamin D in human fertility and early pregnancy. Dr. Jukic has published some of the only papers to examine vitamin D and menstrual cycle function in humans. Her other work includes investigating environmental exposures (such as phthalates and bisphenol-A), nutritional exposures, and physical activity.
