    Miriam Kuppermann is a Professor in the Departments of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, and Epidemiology & Biostatistics. She is also Vice Chair for Clinical Research in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences; Director of the Program in Clinical Perinatal and Comparative Effectiveness Research in the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine; Director of the CTSI Resident Research Training Program; a member of the steering committee of the Medical Effectiveness Research Center for Diverse Populations; and a core faculty member of the Center for Health and Community. Dr. Kuppermann has been conducting patient-centered outcomes research since joining the UCSF faculty in 1995, focusing on patient preferences and informed decision making among racially/ethnically and socioeconomically diverse women. She has a long track record in conducting NIH, AHRQ-, PCORI- and foundation-funded studies in these populations in numerous contexts, including prenatal genetic testing, adult genetic testing for Lynch syndrome, noncancerous uterine conditions, cervical cancer screening and post CIN 2+ treatment surveillance, contraception, and mode of delivery. She and her group published a paper in JAMA describing the impact of an “informed free choice” approach to prenatal genetic testing among women of varying literacy levels (2014;312(12)1210-1217. doi:10.1001.jama2104.11479).

    Dr. Kuppermann is currently PI of “Effect of a Patient-Centered Decision App on TOLAC: An RCT (R01HD078748),” co-investigator/site PI for “Parental Education and Choice Regarding the Retention and Research Use of Residual Newborn Screening Samples” (PI: J Botkin, U of Utah), and co-investigator on “Using Comparative Effectiveness Analyses to Optimize Cervical Cancer Screening” (R01CA169093, PI, G Sawaya, UCSF). She is also a co-investigator on two PCORI-funded studies: “Randomized Trial to Increase Adherence to Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines for Young Women” (CD-1304-6551, PI A Moscicki, UCSF and “Patient Centered Support for Contraceptive Decision Making” (CE-1304-6874; PI C Dehlendorf; UCSF). Dr. Kuppermann has been the primary research mentor to several K Scholars and recipients of other career development awards who have gone on to establish successful, independently funded research careers. She has also enjoyed mentoring numerous, college students, medical students, nursing students, residents, clinical fellows and faculty members. Dr. Kuppermann currently serves on the Executive Management Team of the UCSF Preterm Birth Initiative and is Vice-President Elect of the Society for Medical Decision Making.
