Overview

  • Brian Casey is originally from Pennsylvania, and earned his Doctor of Medicine degree at Temple University in Philadelphia. He then did his OB/GYN residency training at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey and subsequently completed his Maternal-Fetal Medicine training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

    Dr. Casey spent 23 years on faculty at Parkland Hospital/UT Southwestern before coming to University of Alabama at Birmingham as Division Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine. He has been a productive clinician-researcher including serving as the Principal Investigator for the Eunice Kennedy-Shriver NICHD Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network TSH Trial. This landmark investigation of subclinical hypothyroidism involved screening more than 97,000 pregnant women nationally and a 92% five-year developmental follow-up of their offspring. Dr. Casey recently received the Roy M. Pitkin Award from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for a randomized controlled trial in gestational diabetes and the Norman F. Gant Award for Best Research in Maternal-Fetal Medicine for his work on the TSH Trial.
