Anne Shee CC Lee, M.D.


Dr. Lee's research focuses on global perinatal epidemiology and the design and evaluation of interventions to reduce the major causes of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. She directs the Brigham and Women's Global Advancement of Infants and Mothers (AIM) lab.

Current research projects include the:
* Evaluation of the impact of a package of antenatal care interventions to optimize maternal nutrition and infection control on maternal and newborn health outcomes in Ethiopia (the "ENAT" study);
* Evaluation of the impact of screening-and-treatment programs for maternal genitourinary tract infections on perinatal outcomes Sylhet Bangladesh;
* Development and validation of methods of estimating gestational age before and after birth;
* Development and validation of a novel tool, the Bili-ruler, to improve jaundice screening in low income settings;
* Investigation of the vaginal microbiome and inflammatory responses associated with bacterial vaginosis infection and preterm birth;
* Estimation of the global burden of disease of fetal growth restriction and preterm birth and their risk factors

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
