Academics & Research

Inherent to being at the leading edge of reproductive genetics, multiple pregnancy management, and fetal therapy is the commitment to developing new methods, and teaching the field through lectures, training, and the published medical literature. Dr. Evans has played a pre-eminent role worldwide in cutting edge research since the 1980s having won multiple research awards (e.g., President’s Award for research from the Society of Reproductive Investigation in 1999, and the Pioneer Award from the International Society of Prenatal Diagnosis in 2023. He has been President of the International Fetal Medicine and Surgery Society (1987 and 1997) and President of the Central Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in 2007.

Dr. Evans routinely lectures to physicians all over the world, and has published more than 1200 scientific articles, reviews, abstracts, and book chapters. He has published over 30 textbooks including Prenatal Diagnosis, which was translated into Chinese and became the “bible” for genetics in the country.

Over the last 35 years, our research has focused on a number of key areas related to the health of pregnancy, and we have played a leading role in:

  • CVS
  • Multifetal pregnancy reduction
  • Screening for genetic risks (e.g., Down syndrome)
  • Finding fetal cells in maternal blood
  • Early amniocentesis
  • Early CVS
  • Fetal muscle biopsies for Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • Medical correction of birth defects (e.g., congenital adrenal hyperplasia)
  • Fetal surgical correction of anomalies (e.g., obstructed bladders, congenital adrenal hyperplasia)
  • Fetal genetic/stem cell transplants to treat X-SCIDs (the bubble babies)
  • Patient's understanding of risks and options
  • How patients "frame" decisions
  • Re-engineering fetal monitoring in labor
