Dr Owen Vaughan - Fetal and Placental Physiology Group

Understanding what causes pregnancy complications and developing new ways to treat them.

Pregnancy complications that adversely affect the growth of the baby, like fetal growth restriction and maternal obesity, are associated with alterations in the function of the placenta. These complications increase perinatal morbidity and are linked to poor health in later life – a process called developmental programming. My research investigates the function and pathophysiological role of the placenta, using a combination of clinical studies, animal experiments and cell models. My goal is to develop effective treatments for obstetric diseases and their postnatal consequences.
