Cambridge Reproduction


During my Wellcome Trust PhD for Clinicians Programme I utilised a mouse model to focus on how the fundamental maturation of uterine natural killer cells impacts placental function and fetal brain growth. I will now extend my interests to address other mouse genetic models which are relevant for human reproductive health and fetal development. Over the next ten years I plan to establish myself as an independent Clinical Academic at the University of Cambridge, leading research into the neurodevelopmental outcomes of adverse in utero environments. 

My current project will aim to delineate how the fetal brain may be affected by maternal antenatal glucocorticoid exposure, and if clinical strategies can be optimised to minimise potential harm.
