Alison Catherine Weidner
Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology

I am an active clinician/researcher treating women with various forms of pelvic floor dysfunction throughout my career. I maintain a busy clinical practice and particularly enjoy and excel at clinical and surgical training of Iearners at all levels in the medical setting.  

Early in my career I designed and executed innovative clinical research with broad-reaching impact on our knowledge of the mechanism of neuromuscular injury to the pelvic floor and its ultimate contribution to pelvic floor dysfunction.  Currently, my clinical research efforts are dedicated to designing and implementing innovative studies with other investigators within the NICHD-funded Pelvic Floor Disorders Network with direct influence on clinical management of common pelvic disorders.  

I am completing a Duke masters' program in Clinical Informatics to inform my efforts to support my department's goals for building a Women's Health Data Sciences program.

Current Research Interests

My clinical research efforts are dedicated to designing and implementing innovative studies with other investigators within the NICHD-funded Pelvic Floor Disorders Network with direct influence on clinical management of common pelvic disorders.  

Administratively, I am collaborating to establish a Women's Health Data Sciences program and seeking to build a research agenda around that effort focusing on clinical post graduate education, clinical operations, and quality of care.
