    Biography

    Bin Gu, Ph.D. received his BS degree in Bio-technology and his Ph.D. degree in Cell Biology from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. He completed postdoctoral training at the Hospital for Sick Children in Canada from 2013 to 2020 in the Program of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology. He is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology within the College of Human Medicine.

    Research

    The focus of my research is investigating the molecular mechanisms regulating early embryo development, infertility and genetic disease. My Lab develop new genome engineering technology to generate mouse models for complex mutations to model human diseases. We study them use cutting-edge technologies, such as live imaging and in-vivo genetic engineering, to understand the mechanism and develop new treatments for human diseases.

  • Cristian Meghea PhD

    BIOGRAPHY

    Cristian Meghea, Ph.D. is an NIH-funded Associate Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Michigan State University. His expertise is in maternal and child health, global health, health services research, health policy, and women’s health.  His research focuses on the prenatal and perinatal period as a window of opportunity to improve the long-term health of mothers and their children.  He brings quantitative skills and data analysis expertise to his field of research.

    RESEARCH INTERESTS

    Dr. Meghea’s research focuses on improving women’s health in low resource settings with a collaborative, community-engaged, multidisciplinary, and global approach. The broad goal of this research is to use the prenatal and perinatal period as a window of opportunity to improve the long-term health of women and their families and to reduce health disparities. Dr. Meghea accomplishes this goal by leading clinical and policy relevant health research to improve the care and health of the Medicaid population of pregnant women and by leading interventions focused on tobacco control during and around pregnancy. His research agenda was supported by over $31 million awarded by National Institutes of Health (NIH), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Romanian Government, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and other sources. He is the primary author or co-author of 51 academic articles (close to 650 citations) published in journals including JAMA Pediatrics, American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Pediatrics, American Journal of Public Health, and European Journal of Public Health.

    Dr. Meghea led a research program using quasi-experimental methods that established the Medicaid enhanced prenatal services program in Michigan (MIHP) as an evidence-based program. The analyses relied on multiple complete statewide Medicaid birth cohorts with linked data sources including birth and death records, Medicaid claims, and MIHP program data. The work showed that MIHP participation improves the healthcare utilization of mothers and infants and reduces the risk of adverse birth outcomes and infant mortality. MIHP is now one of the programs that meets the Department of Health and Human Services criteria for an evidence-based home visiting program. Current work includes the evaluation of a Michigan Healthy Start home visiting program in a Pay For Success public-private partnership, with partners including the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Spectrum Health, one of five top large health systems in the US. Dr. Meghea is also leading the evaluation of a Michigan Healthy Start program implementing prenatal and postnatal patient safety bundles, as part of a partnership led by the National Healthy Start Association

    Dr. Meghea’s ongoing tobacco control work builds on a program of research in the US and in Romania and includes trials of a phone counseling tobacco cessation intervention, with early evidence of efficacy, and of an app-based mHealth tobacco cessation intervention (the SFT 1.0 app), both focused on pregnant couples, and co-designed with patient, clinical, governmental, non-governmental, and community partners. He uses mixed methods, including advanced research design and evaluation methods in his projects. The mHealth trial uses a factorial design to test main and interaction effects of the intervention components. A 5-year project under review with NIH will test in a hybrid effectiveness/implementation trial the SFT 2.0 tobacco cessation app which incorporates an AI algorithm (reinforcement learning) to continuously optimize the content, flow and cost-effectiveness of the intervention. Dr. Meghea is actively involved in the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT), and currently serves as the Public Health Research Director of SRNT-University.

  • Excerpts from our conversation with Dr. Stacey Missmer, an NIH-funded women’s health specialist at Michigan State University.

    NIHNiH: How common are painful periods in teens?

    Missmer: Moderate to severe pain during one’s period—that is, pain that impacts someone's life—is reported by about 35 to 40% of teen and adult women in the U.S. It isn't in any way rare.
