About Maureen Keller-Wood

Maureen Keller-Wood, Ph.D., is the associate dean for research and graduate education and professor of pharmacodynamics. She holds the CVS/Pharmacy, Inc. professorship. Dr. Keller-Wood’s overall research interest is the physiologic adaptations to pregnancy and effects of maternal physiology on fetal maturation and growth. Her current research focuses on understanding the mechanism for increased stillbirth and neonatal mortality in pregnancies complicated by maternal hypercortisolemia and altered maternal and fetal glucose metabolism. She received her Ph.D. in endocrinology from the University of California, San Francisco, in 1982 and her Bachelor of Arts in biochemistry from Vassar College in 1977.
