Research

Dr. Grotegut conducts both basic science/laboratory research, as well as participate in running clinical studies.  His laboratory research interests primarily focus on the hormone oxytocin and in understanding the mechanisms of uterine contractility.  This work is translated then to the clinical care of women through studies dedicated to understanding normal and abnormal labor.  In addition to his work in labor, he is involved in understanding the role that medical conditions and complications have in pregnancy outcomes.
