Maternal and Fetal Medicine
The Department, headed by Prof Pascale V Guillot, represents a significant collaboration of scientists and clinicians with a unifying aim to improve outcomes for pregnant women and their babies through improved diagnosis and treatment. Research ranges from investigation of mechanisms of conditions such as preterm birth, fetal growth restriction and perinatally acquired brain injury to the development of novel therapies using vector based gene delivery and stem cell based strategies to address prenatal acquired and congenital abnormalities.
We carry out research in 4 main areas:
- Regenerative Medicine (cell, exosome and gene therapy)
- Placenta Biology
- Preterm Birth
- Perinatal Care
