Dr. Lechner's research interest is in the role of the extracellular matrix in preterm premature rupture of fetal membranes, a common cause of premature birth. Specifically, her laboratory is elucidating the role of proteoglycans in the maintenance of fetal membrane integrity throughout gestation in order to identify novel targets for the prevention of preterm rupture of membranes.
