Jennifer Armstrong, MD, received her MD from University of California San Francisco and her MPH from University of California Berkeley and currently sees patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Her interest in women’s health stems from her understanding of the intimate dynamics in the maternal-placental-fetal triad that not only impacts short-term health outcomes but life-long health. 


Research + Funding 

From 2010 to 2014, Dr. Armstrong received funding from the Ludeman Center for two research projects. Titled, “In-Utero Inflammation in Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes as a Biomarker in Perinatal Brain Injury” and “In-Utero Inflammation in Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes as a Biomarker in Perinatal Brain Injury,” they focused on linking patterns and changes of inflammation and blood clotting dynamics found in pregnant women and the placenta as well as the fetus and long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes. 

As a senior member of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus research community, she feels deeply connected to the Ludeman Center and how it has supported her career goals. “The incredible faith and mentorship of the center’s supporting faculty is especially important for early-career faculty when perseverance and positivity is sometimes hard. With the community at the center, both with the researchers as well as the community partners, there is belonging and drive to create impact as a team,” she shares.  


Transforming Women’s Health 

Dr. Armstrong’s current research includes regulatory, compliance and administration while continuing her leadership roles at CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
