Center for Research for Mothers and Children (CRMC)
  • The Center for Research for Mothers and Children (CRMC), serves as the principal NIH source of support for research and research training in maternal and child health. CRMC-supported scientists are advancing fundamental and clinical knowledge concerning maternal health and child development problems such as low birth weight, mental retardation and developmental disabilities, specific learning disabilities, congenital and genetic defects, growth retardation, HIV, and other congenital infections and diseases. The major goals of the Center are to ensure that mothers and families are healthy, and that all babies are born healthy and will reach adulthood and achieve their full potential.
