Our research

We know that abnormal development and function of the placenta is often the cause of many pregnancy problems.

We also study fertility and the impact of the environment on early pregnancy and child growth, alongside the Department of Reproductive Medicine at St Mary’s Hospital.

Further information on our clinical research studies can be found on the Saint Mary’s Hospital website.
