Congenital Disorders

Our research into conditions that babies are born with or acquire during birth include: infections transmitted from a mother to her child, genetic conditions that may be inherited from either parent, and disorders of development that may manifest at birth or during the early years.

Through this research we aim to provide information that can be used to improve how these disorders are diagnosed, treated and prevented and their long term consequences for children's health and well-being and that of their families.

Our research has been used to inform relevant NICE and other guidelines, future research priorities as well as for the development of national screening policies.
