Ratings: (0)|Views: 344|Likes:
Stacie Geller, PhD, is the G. William Arends Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. She is the Director of the UIC Center for Research on Women and Gender and the National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health. In her role as director of two UIC centers, she promotes collaborative multidisciplinary work related to women’s lives. Dr Geller is a health services researcher and epidemiologist with expertise in women’s health issues, complementary and alternative medicine, and maternal mortality and morbidity and has published extensively in these areas. She has had a well-established national and international research career and has been awarded numerous research grants from the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies and foundations. Dr Geller has also been actively involved in leadership and mentoring activities for women and under-represented minorities on the UIC campus.

Dr Geller has been studying maternal mortality and morbidity since 1999. She was the principal investigator of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Association of Schools of Public Health cooperative agreement, “Investigation of factors associated with maternal mortality.” She developed an innovative model for early identification of high-risk women that has garnered national attention. Dr Geller’s work in maternal mortality and morbidity extends to international circles. She recently completed a 5-year National Institute of Child Health and Human Development randomized clinical trail comparing the use of oral misoprostol compared to standard of care to reduce postpartum hemorrhage in rural India. She is currently working with the MacArthur Foundation and Pathfinder International to implement a continuum of care model to reduce postpartum hemorrhage in India, Nigeria, and Ghana.

Dr Geller has been working with the state of Illinois for the past 10 years to enhance surveillance for maternal mortality and morbidity. She was a founding member of and currently sits on the Illinois Maternal Mortality Review Committee and is responsible for review of preventability issues for all maternal deaths in the state.

Over the past several years, Dr Geller has mentored a number of doctoral candidates, primarily in the UIC School of Public Health and the College of Nursing as well as a number of clinical postdoctoral fellows in the College of Medicine. She also has worked closely with junior faculty for training and career planning. Prior to being funded for the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health program, she cofounded the Interdisciplinary Women’s Health Research program to provide senior faculty support to junior faculty who are interested in women’s health research. Junior faculty scholars are advised by an interdisciplinary group of senior women’s health research faculty and are paired with two senior faculty mentors. Mentoring activities address research proposal development, research methodology, preparation of materials for publication and presentation, funding, and other research issues.
