This environment allows for multidisciplinary, collaborative translational research. Research is divided into a balanced portfolio of fetal imaging, laboratory, original clinical and collaborative clinical areas. Fetal imaging: the use of novel Doppler parameters to assess fetal myocardial efficiency and quantification of power Doppler to define regional perfusion Laboratory research group: trophoblast culture techniques, inflammation and pregnancy complications. Original clinical: multiple local projects are currently underway within Obstetrics, Fetal Medicine & Midwifery
