Maternal fetal medicine (FM) technologist, Tod Browning, will soon be graduating from the University of Toronto.
She is joining the Global Research Institute, a research centre of Global Research, a global research and technology company.
It is the company that has partnered with Canadian university students and other research professionals in developing the new cold medicine and isotonic medicine technologies.
Browning is a graduate of the University’s Graduate Program in Health Care Technology and is now working on developing technologies to diagnose and treat maternal-fetal diseases.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology in 2012.
In 2016, she received the National Science Foundation (NSF) Human-Computer Interaction Award for her work in maternal-fetus medicine.
Brownings research is being conducted in the fields of maternal-therapy, maternal-neonatal medicine, maternal cancer, maternal respiratory disease, and maternal-carcinogenesis.
She will continue to work on maternal-fluid-related diseases, such as trichotillomania, in order to better understand the mechanisms that influence their development and disease development.
Maternal-fetale disease and maternal health will be among the areas of research she is working on.
Browns research focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control maternal and fetal physiology, as well as maternal and neonatal outcomes.
She also focuses on maternal and newborn brain function and physiology, including its influence on development and aging.
She holds a Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University and is currently completing a PhD in Applied Molecular Biology at the Canadian Institute of Health Research.
Maternity medicine technology is a broad area of research and development that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of maternal and maternal fetal disorders.

Brown earned her B.
Sc. in Medical Sciences and Bachelor of Medicine in Nursing from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Ontario College of Osteopathic Medicine in Toronto in 1978.
She joined the College in 1984.
She completed her Master of Arts in Human Physiology at the College, then joined the faculty in 1987 as a Fellow.
She returned to the faculty as a Senior Research Fellow in 1998.
She continued her studies at the Graduate School of Education and Training at the School of Medicine, and she holds a doctorate in Clinical Microbiology from the School’s Department of Medicine.
Brown worked at the Division of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in the Department at Queen’s Park Hospital in New York for a number of years.
She earned her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Human Reproduction and Reproductive Medicine from the McGill University School of Social Work in 2005.
In 2009, she completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the McGill School of Public Health, where she was an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and of Family Medicine and Public Health Medicine.
She was also the Director of the McGill Child and Adolescence Research and Education Centre.
Brown holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Medicine from Queen’s and a Masters of Public and International Affairs in Public Health Sciences from McGill University.
She currently holds a Doctoral Degree in Child and Family Medicine from McGill.
