Dr. Friedman's research addresses how parasitic diseases, particularly malaria and schistosomiasis (a worm infection of the liver and intestines) cause morbidity for pregnant women and children. Previous research has addressed whether or not these infections are associated with adverse maternal and birth outcomes, malnutrition, anemia, and cognitive impairment. It has also examined how these parasites cause these problems to more effectively address best options for treating these morbidities.
