Fetal and Neonatal Health Research Group
Research Group Head
The research in this theme in The Ritchie Centre seeks to understand the factors controlling normal fetal and newborn development, including how the fetus transitions to life after birth. Our research is focused on conditions and diseases that commonly affect newborns and children, including prematurity, intrauterine growth restriction, brain injury, and neonatal lung disease. We also aim to gain insights into how early life events may lead to life-long diseases such as multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, chronic lung diseases, obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
