Perinatal and Reproductive Health

Improving the health of women and their children

We carry out translational research covering women’s reproductive life from fertility through pregnancy to the health of the baby in their first year of life.To carry out our research, we develop tools to accurately predict outcomes around fertility, pregnancy and birth. We also develop the best possible treatments for groups of people at risk of stillbirth, gestational diabetes (diabetes that some women develop during pregnancy) and perinatal asphyxia (when babies are starved of oxygen during birth).
