Research Program
Barbara Luke is a reproductive epidemiologist with degrees from Columbia University in nursing and population studies, from New York University in foods and nutrition, and her doctorate from Johns Hopkins University in maternal and child health. She is the author, coauthor, or editor of 17 books, 30 chapters, 86 original research papers, and 161 scientific abstracts. Her research has been funded from both private foundations and federal sources. Her book, When You’re Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads (HarperCollins, 3rd edition, 2011; 4th edition in press) won Outstanding Book of the Year from the American Society of Journalists and Authors in 2000. She is the recipient of the 2005 Agnes Higgins Award from the March of Dimes for distinguished lifetime achievement in maternal-fetal nutrition. She and her research team have won the Prize Paper at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine annual meeting in 2009 and 2013.

Her primary research focus over the past forty years has been women’s health, including national and international collaborative studies on employment during pregnancy, perinatal nutrition, multiple pregnancy, and infertility. Dr. Luke created the University Consortium on Multiple Births, researchers from four universities (Johns Hopkins University, Medical University of South Carolina, University of Miami, and University of Michigan) who collaborate on studies to improve outcomes in multiple pregnancies. She developed a database of more than 3,500 twin, triplet, and quadruplet pregnancies, which began with a decade of twin births in Baltimore, Maryland for her doctoral thesis. In 2009, the Institute of Medicine used her research team’s body mass index-specific weight gain guidelines as the first national recommendations for women pregnant with twins. Since 2006, Dr. Luke has been working with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology on a series of NIH-funded projects to evaluate the health of men, women, and their children after infertility treatment, including linkage of the SART database with State vital records, birth defects, and cancer registries.
