Our research is directed at understanding the causes and consequences of exposure to inflammation around the time of birth, and developing treatments to prevent diseases associated with inflammation and preterm birth.
Research in The Perinatal Inflammation Lab centres around three themes:
- Identification of mechanisms whereby inflammation affects development
- Determination of the long-term health consequences of perinatal inflammation
- Development of amnion epithelial cell therapy for prevention and treatment of inflammatory disease in newborns
