Breastfeeding

THE LACTATION LAB

Improving the health of two generations by optimizing breastfeeding

The Lactation Lab was founded in 2020 by two neonatologists, Dr. Rimi Sen and Dr. Cami Martin, who recognized the much needed scientific rigor needed in research studies investigating lactation. The Lactation Lab is comprised of both a clinical space and a laboratory space. The clinical space houses key tools needed for maternal and infant evaluation and the laboratory space aims to develop "best practices" for breastmilk storage and measurement techniques. The Lactation Lab is also home to the prospective Maternal & Infant Metabolome & Microbiome (MIMM) Study investigating the link between the maternal, breastmilk, and infant microbiomes.
