She was appointed to Instructor (Research) in 2012 and promoted to Assistant Professor (Research) in 2014.  She is currently on the faculty at the Women's Medicine Collaborative at the Miriam Hospital.

Dr.  Bublitz’s program of research has focused on psychological stress and dysregulation of biological systems that may serve as pathways to poor health.  More recently, Dr. Bublitz has sought to understand the biological pathways linking maternal stress to preterm birth. The long-term goal of this program of research is to identify targets for interventions that are present and modifiable in pregnancy to reduce rates of preterm birth in at-risk individuals.
