Fetal exposure and postnatal diseases

​This new important area aims to investigate how different types of foetal exposures influence morbidity and mortality in infants and adults. 

Our focus is different types of maternal medical exposures, surgery before pregnancy, maternal age and in vitro fertilisation, for postnatal morbidity.
